Wes Helmick the founder of Whispering Bluffs Winery, is not just a wine lover, his passion for art has benefited the town of Potosi with the opening of the Great River Road Museum of Contemporary Art. The museum is located in a historic building that used to be the old Potosi grocery store. It has been creatively renovated and provides an ideal space for art exhibits, small performances, and lectures. Wes Helmick’s vision for a space for art to showcase Mississippi River Valley artist’s works, came to fruition at the end of 2013 when the Great River Road Museum opened. The Museum will re-open from winter break May 1st 2014.
The initial summer hours will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Visit the museums website to see the schedule of exhibits.
