Washington Pavilion's Visual Arts Center has eight galleries that feature local, regional, and national artists.

Brandon Hanson, Director of Museums said, "Museums exist to transport us to another world, to challenge us, to share ideas and to invite us to explore. Our 12,000 sq. ft. Visual Arts Center is packed full of exhibitions that do just that. We are working with local and regional artists of exceptionally high caliber, and are thrilled to get to share them with our community."

New to The Bates Trimble Gallery is a new exhibit titled On the Edge. On the Edge features artwork from three University of Sioux Falls professors, Ceca Cooper, Nick Poppens, and Joe Schaeffer. The exhibit is about the realities many faced during the past year and offer a unique perspective “how the world has lived on the edge.”
