How to Get the Art Gallery in Animal Crossing: New Horizons


The long-awaited arrival of the artwork for Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings with it the promise of an improved museum and the familiar face of both friend and foe, Redd. There are only fossils, insects, and fish on show at the museum at the moment, but soon there will be a new art gallery wing that visitors can unlock and fill with a variety of paintings, sculptures, and other pieces of art. The following is a guide that will walk you through everything from locating Redd to unlocking the art exhibition.

When Redd initially arrives on your island, you should make your way over to the plaza to speak with him so that he can give you a painting. When I tried to get rid of the “common painting,” he originally demanded a significant amount of money from me in exchange. If you refuse, he will make it available to you at a far more reasonable cost.

After you have made the purchase, head on over to Blathers at the Animal Crossing: New Horizons museum to show him your newly acquired work of art (opens in new tab). There will be a new dialogue prompt that reads, “I discovered a work of art!” and it will appear. If you go that route, you’ll be presented with the opportunity to give the museum some of your artwork. To our relief, this one does not appear to be a fake.

This will cause Blathers to apply for a museum expansion permit, and after two days of standard calendar time, the art gallery wing will be added to your museum. The following day after that, the museum will be closed since it is undergoing renovations, and then the following day after that, the art gallery will be expanded.


How do you get the works of art in Animal Crossing?

In Animal Crossing, the only option for a player to get paintings is to either travel to Crazy Redd’s, which is a black market run by Redd and contains both fake and real paintings, or to Tom Nook’s store, which always has real paintings in stock. Neither of these locations sells fake paintings. There are a total of 15 artworks available.

Why can’t I find Redd Animal Crossing?

Going to the little beach on the north side of your island is a quick and easy way to determine whether or not Redd has arrived at all on your island. You really should check out his boat. Until you have a conversation with Redd, you won’t be allowed to enter the building. On your island, he’ll be hiding out somewhere.

What time does Crazy Redd show up?

10:00 A.M. – 04:00 A.M.

Is the first painting from Redd real?

What’s the Deal with That Mysterious Painting? You don’t have to worry about getting ripped off if you buy this item from Jolly Redd because there is no fake or forged version of the Mysterious Painting. You can buy it with complete peace of mind! The Mysterious Painting will never be a facsimile or an imitation of anything.

What days is Redd on the island?

When it comes to Redd’s appearance on your island, there are no predetermined hours during which he will do so. Due to the absence of predetermined hours, it is impossible to predict when Redd will visit your island, if he does so at all.
