Art Galleries & Museums
Greenville’s eclectic and thriving art scene is fueled by much of the talent coming out of the East Carolina University School of Art. Creatives from all backgrounds find Greenville the perfect training ground and place to express themselves in all forms. Explore the galleries of the Greenville Museum of Art, Emerge Gallery & Art Center home of the Pitt County Arts Council, The Art Lab artist incubator, City Art Gallery, and more! Attend art-focused events such as the monthly First Friday Art Walk in Uptown Greenville, spring Youth Arts Festival, and special themed fundraising events throughout the year!
Nearby Farmville has its own brand of funky Southern style when it comes to art, and is the home of the East Carolina University GlasStation, located in a revitalized and repurposed Exxon gas station where you can watch or participate in live glass blowing demonstrations or shop for unique pieces in the retail shop. Visit several downtown art galleries such as WonderBox Gallery, East Carolina ArtSpace, and others and check out the restored “ghost murals” on buildings around town!
