The Butler Institute of American Art--Salem Branch Reviews
An Afternoon of Art Sep 23, 2012
One rainy afternoon I decided to visit the Salem Branch of the Butler Institute of American Art. My family had toured the main institute when I was younger but I had never gotten the chance to visit this smaller gallery.
The Butler museums showcase artwork by Americans--obviously. The Salem branch has a rotates through pieces from the main museum and also shows works by local artists. While I was there, nearly all the pieces on display were entries from a contest for artists in the area. The works were a mix of mediums including paintings, sculptures, and photographs. One section focused on artwork from children.
I enjoyed walking around the quiet museum. There were not many visitors that day. I spent less than an hour viewing the art but I felt that my time was well-spent.
EDIT: As of winter 2012 this museum has closed
