Brewing Up International Art

Housed in an old brewery, this rather distinct contemporary art gallery does not house any permanent exhibitions, but rather focuses on several temporary international exhibits each year. That being said, as you explore all three levels of the museum, you’re bound to discover much more than modern art.

Wander into the café and you’ll find quaint wooden tables scattered among numerous huge, retired copper brewing cauldrons that reach all the way up to the ceiling. On a separate floor, the center offers residencies and programs for youth, as well as classes for local women, which aim to promote literacy and creativity. Walk into the next room, and you may find a piece of art constructed solely of recycled materials, strewn about. WIELS is certainly an intriguing experience for any traveler with a taste for the arts.
