Wow! We had an amazing experience at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art. It started with the drive through a lovely, wooded residential area that had us wondering if we were on the right track. Then we arrived, and were pleasantly surprised by the setting...More

I don't know why people even visit here. Does host parties. Not much to it. Is located back in a housing neighborhood so at least it is safe to visit.

SECCA is wonderful if they happen to be showing something good. However, frequently they are between shows/exhibits. The old Hanes house is gorgeous as are the grounds but for someone who is expecting an exhibition of art it is critical to find out ahead of...More

Two different people recommended this museum to us. However, when we arrived, we discovered that they were between exhibits and there was literally nothing to see. The museum is in a home once owned by the Hanes family (as in hosiery) but there are only...More

SECCA is kind of tucked away in a neighborhood close to Graylyn, but it's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area. Admission is free, and they have a great collection of modern art. Everything on display was selected by Wake Forest students, which...More
