Experience the Redlin Art Center

Marvel at Terry Redlin’s masterpieces inside the Redlin Art Center and find inspiration on the beautiful grounds surrounding the building. Built as a generous gift from Terry Redlin to his hometown of Watertown, South Dakota, the Redlin Art Center houses over 160 of Redlin’s original oil paintings and is entirely free to visit. There are three floors of original art to explore –  all fully accessible and entirely self-guided. No reservations necessary!

The Gallery

Every painting tells a story about Terry Redlin’s life. You’ll find nuggets of his past hidden in plain sight, captured in the beautiful details that make his paintings so unique. Learn More

Conservation Park

An avid outdoorsman, Terry’s first dream was to be a park ranger. This dream is honored in the 30-acre Conservation Park surrounding the Redlin Art Center. The park – designed by Terry himself – is “Redlin’s living painting”. Learn More
