Surveying the Terrain exhibition on view 10/4/2013—1/13/2014.
December FREE First Friday at CAM Raleigh is sponsored by North Carolina Modernist Houses. The evening includes the spectacular Surveying the Terrain exhibition, all-ages art to go in the Creation Station, a video showcase of modernist homes, pop up performances by Flying Erase Head, Exploris Middle School Docents, Food Trucks and so much fun.
Flying Erase Head is a performance by artist Bart Trotman. In Flying Erase Head, Trotman repurposes TV and video images and sets them to found sound collages and live electronic scoring. It is said that to see the future, we must look at the past. Trotman examines the recent past of TV and its offspring, home-video, and how they advanced our mythologies surrounding humankind's unshakable compulsion to push the limits in the search for objective truth. Pop up performances at 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm.

The CAM Raleigh Urban Drawing Group is a monthly group intended for all skill levels interested in exercising, exploring or expanding their drawing skills. The Urban Drawing Group meets inside of CAM Raleigh and then enters the urban settings surrounding the museum in the Warehouse District, and sometimes further into downtown Raleigh. Pausing at inspiring vistas, ignored buildings, curious landscapes, or forgotten details, the goal of the Urban Drawing group is to take time to study our surroundings and exercise our dormant drawing skills. All media that can pack into a pocket, backpack, or purse are encouraged and participants are expected to bring their own supplies.
Participation in each monthly session is just $5 (cost of museum admission), free for CAM Raleigh members. All participants must check-in at the CAM Raleigh front desk upon arrival.
*The group will depart CAM Raleigh shortly after 2:00 p.m., please arrive early so you have time to check in.
Participants must be 18+.
Explore the Surveying the Terrain exhibition, visit the Creation Station for hands-on activities, and meet our student docents.
