CAM Raleigh opens today

By admincam1 | April 30, 2011

The Friday night grand opening party was fabulous! We are blessed to have such support in our little community of Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill.  But the party was just the beginning…

This weekend is the Grand Opening of CAM Raleigh, a museum for contemporary art and design in Raleigh’s historic Warehouse District.  CAM Raleigh is a partnership between the community and North Carolina State University‘s (NC State) College of Design.

CAM Raleigh Board members, staff, and NC State officials will preside over a grand ribbon cutting ceremony at CAM Raleigh on April 30 at 11:30 a.m. Free admission is offered Saturday and Sunday, 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sponsored by Progress Energy, the weekend includes hands-on activities in the museum classroom, middle school student docents, and opportunities for visitors to interact with exhibition artists.

The inaugural exhibitions on view include Dan Steinhilber: Hold On, Loosely in the main gallery and Naoko Ito: Urban Nature in the Independent Weekly Gallery. Inspired by CAM Raleigh’s historic building, Dan Steinhilber has created a series of site-specific installations throughout the Museum that reflect society’s impulse to preserve the perishable. The Urban Nature series by Naoko Ito examines the relationships between the natural world and the industrial world.
