Redlin Art Center

1200 33rd Street SE, Watertown, SD 57201


Museum Website

The Gallery features Terry Redlin’s original oil paintings. 

Every painting created since 1985 is on permanent display, totaling more than 150 original oil paintings . In 1999, the Art Center acquired 15 of Redlin’s older originals. Because Terry Redlin sold almost all of his paintings between the years of 1977 and 1984, the Redlin Art Center had not been able to display original work representing each year of Redlin’s career. With the arrival of the “new” paintings, the Center now has originals dating from 1978 to 1985. These paintings are part of Redlin’s history – each painting tells a story and marks a specific time in the artist’s life and career.

The exterior design of the 52,000 square foot brick building was inspired by the Egyptian Revival period, with immense Rockville White granite columns reaching 38 feet skyward. 

The 30 acres surrounding the Redlin Art Center offer more than one mile of walking trails, bridges, gazebos, and the Redlin Pavilion.
