Somewhat interesting but you can't beat the price

I could tell it was going to be bizarre. There was lots of stuff to look at but I wouldn't call most of it art.

My kids LOVED visiting this old store chocked full of art installations and old items dating several decades back. The kids explored, played and enjoyed the "scavenger hunt" that Elsewhere provided. I enjoyed the visit equally as much! And the best part was after several hours of being here- Mellow Mushroom pizzeria was just right across the street!

We were celebrating my daughter's birthday in a restaurant nearby and decided to take a walk down Elm street since most of us have only been there once or not at all. We found this little shop to be very fun and entertaining. We plan on going again this year to see how it has changed. I'm not much for... More

Took my granddaughter here on the recommendation of a friend. This is one weird place! A lot of fabric and old toys in a very strange environment. At any moment, I expected to find myself lost in a horror movie. In fact if some horror movie director wants to shoot something in NC, I recommend he/she take a trip back... More

Not everyone thinks alike and in fact sometimes people think so far out of the box there has to be a place like "Elsewhere" for them to think and exercise their thoughts. As a commercial artist who is always collecting thoughts and visions so tights that anyone can understand the messaging, it was nice to see so much free thinking.... More

A very unique setting in which artists create works from salvaged, surplus or second hand, used materials, toys, objects of every imaginable type.

We attended the Last Great Winter at Elsewhere this month, and what a unique place this is. Dubbed a living museum, it is unlike anything else you have likely ever seen. Visiting artists come from all over the globe and create art, projections,installations and other forms of living art and whatever their imaginations move them to create from 3 floors... More

grew up in g'boro. was walking elm st before it was safe and when this "art" project was just an eyesore that somehow managed all by itself to bring down a block of mostly vacant and crumbling store fronts on the wrong side of the tracks from a languishing downtown. in my memory it's always quiet and rainy there, and...

Just of a bunch of junk laying around and the thought of having to pay to see it is ridiculous! Don't waste your time.

I like the idea that they are "re-cycling" old stuff but I left with the feeling like I just payed to walk through an antique store/someone's living room! Not what I expected, could be more creative and the people/staff/artists weren't very interactive. wtf was with that tv thing?
