We stopped at Redlin Art Center on our way to Minnesota. It was a on the spot decision because we were fueling up and decided to pop over. We stopped for a few hours which was okay but really should allow more time. What a wonderful story of South Dakota put into paintings. Visually pleasing! Very relaxing and the outdoor... More

Every time I visit Watertown with principles, I take them there. I see in their eyes the same wonder and appreciation I had the first time I visited. Plus there is a set of pictures that still bring tears to my eyes even though I have seen them over ten times. A joy to experience the talent of Terry Tedlin.... More

The settings and backdrops for Terry's art are all Norman Rockwell picturesque and better!!! He was one of the very best wildlife and hometown artists to put paint to canvas. Any fan of this style of artistry would be in awe of the display in this center. Many of the pieces are available in print and other media for purchase... More

We have toured this wonderful Art Center several times. It is always wonderful and never gets old. The park area is lovely and there are picnic spots to just enjoy the outdoors areas. The central pavilion can be rented for a special event and is popular for wedding receptions. The Art Galleries and parking are always free. Mr. Redlin's work... More

This was an amazing place to visit. They had a great scavenger hunt for the kids to do while we toured. Wish we would have had more time to spend there.

I'm not super familiar with Terry Redlin but his work is outstanding. The front desk has a little scavenger hunt to help keep young kids engaged while you look. The building is very nice and we'll kept.

Love to go through and look at all of his fantastic artwork, love his cinema and ice cream room after his wife that was a Langenfield. I've collected ice cream boxes for Jack Wagner that he has on display. Sadly he passed away but he had done so much for the community, I'll always return and admire his life's work.

Thank Tonya A
