Redlin Art Center is off I-29 exit 177 at 1200 33rd St. S.E./Mickelson Dr. Housed in a Colonial-style, four-story brick building supported by 24 granite columns, the center is home to more than 155 oil paintings of wildlife and Americana by local artist Terry Redlin. Redlin grew up wanting to be a forest ranger but became a graphic artist following a motorcycle accident. Earthy colors and nostalgic themes are hallmarks of his work, and each of the center's paintings is individually lit to emphasize their intricate details.
Plush decorations and such furnishings as a fireplace and rocking chair await visitors of the Comforts of Home cabin, the bucolic elegance of which is inspired by Redlin's artwork. The Redlin Amphitheater features daily video presentations about the artist.
