About Waterworks Visual Arts Center

Waterworks Visual Arts Center is a not-for-profit, noncollecting visual arts museum located in Salisbury North Carolina. Founded in 1959, it is one of only twelve (12) nationally accredited art museums in North Carolina. It is an exciting place where ideas, issues, and communities converge to expand traditional ways of thinking and explore the complex and unfolding patterns between artistic and cultural spheres.

Waterworks strives to be a leader and innovator in the exhibition of art and in museum education.  Creative and expressive artwork from established and emerging regional and local artists are featured in three annual rotating exhibitions. The museum is open free of charge six days a week. Please continue to explore our website to find out more of what happens inside and outside the Visual Arts Center.
