City of Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker singled out CAM Raleigh as one of the many projects moving Raleigh to “world-class status.”

In his State of the City address March 15, he told a crowd:

“That facility is going to open the end of April. It’s going to be one of the finest contemporary art museums in this country, just over here on West Martin Street.”

Mayor Meeker said it’s a great example of the city and North Carolina State University “working well together to benefit our whole community.”

But he wasn’t satisfied and ended the address with a call to build on successes: “Let’s really get this town going!”

We’re right there with the Mayor. April 30 is just the beginning for CAM Raleigh.

We need your help. Starting with your ideas: What role would you like CAM Raleigh to play in your community? How are you hoping it improves your experience in downtown Raleigh?
