Eau Claire Visual Arts
It's time to get artsy in Eau Claire. To appreciate the visual art in Eau Claire, take a trip to all of our art galleries and take on the Sculpture Tour. You can even see our art in action by shopping for local art at our local businesses like The Local Store and Tangled Up in Hue (can you tell we love local?). If you want to get your hands dirty, create your own and discover the artist inside of you by enjoying a night at Cheers Pablo or at Banbury Place!

Among all of the cool things you will find while shopping at the Local Store, the art work found in the Volume One Gallery may be some of the coolest.

The Pablo Center in downtown Eau Claire serves as the hub for all kinds of art in the city of Eau Claire. Visual art fans can wander through their galleries that feature rotating artists and themes.

The murals seen at the Banbury Place Mural Art Gallery were once found on the outside windows of a vacant building in downtown Eau Claire on Barstow St. They have been preserved and now can be found in the unique building that Banbury Place is. Banbury Place is also home to Eau Claire's annual art crawl that brings in artists from all over to display and sell their work. Guess you can say that Banbury Place is the place to be for all things art!
