Come to CAM for June First Friday for the soft-opening of two fantastic new exhibitions and the final First Friday of Leonardo Drew’s installation. We invite you to explore the exhibitions, take tours led by our Middle School Docents, create something amazing in our exhibition-inspired Creation Station, and enjoy music, food trucks, and more! We'll also have a special showcase of bug-themed artwork created by students from Fuller Elementary School.  Admission is free for everyone from 6-10pm.

June 2 is National Gun Violence Awareness Day. In connection with David Hess’ new exhibition, Gun Show, members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will be present to share information about their mission to reduce gun violence in the US. Lookout for these ladies wearing orange - the color of gun violence prevention. For more information about National Gun Violence Awareness Day and the #wearorange movement, visit wearorange.org.

Leonardo Drew: site specific installation
Brooklyn-based artist, Leonardo Drew has created a site-specific installation in the main gallery using locally sourced, natural and manmade debris. The resulting sculptural experience references the turbulence and chaotic disarray caused by hurricanes in North Carolina.
