Visitors to the Spartanburg Art Museum can view great works of art and learn how to create their own artwork under the same roof. The museum’s permanent collection includes artwork that spans multiple mediums, including paintings, photography, textiles, and sculpture from noted artists such as August Cook, Francesco Bartolozzi, and other North and South Carolinian artists. Talented artists—many of whom hold degrees in their respective disciplines—lead the museum’s Art School, where they teach both kids and adults how to craft their own masterpieces. The museum also regularly welcomes rotating exhibitions, guest speakers, and special programs.

Exotic animals from six continents call Hollywild Animal Park home, though many have also firmly planted their paws and hooves in the entertainment business—hence the name Hollywild. Tank the rhino, for instance, has appeared in multiple national advertising campaigns, avoiding the paparazzi by hiding himself in his dressing room. But the nonprofit park gives visitors more than a brush with stardom, as many of the animals they shelter are extinct in the wild. Virtually nowhere else on earth will guests get to visit a Syrian Brown Bear or get up close and personal with a waffalo (a cross between an African Watusi and a buffalo).
Hollywild gives visitors a bounty of ways to experience this variety. On Safari Rides, knowledgeable guides drive tour buses through more than 70 acres where zebra, emus, donkeys, camels, antelope, and other animals roam free. In the ampitheater, audiences get close encounters with fascinating fauna thanks to interactive Creature Feature shows. And throughout the park, visitors have ample opportunities to pet and feed the animals.
