Arthouse 2012

Friday, May 11, 2012
7–8 p.m. | Host Committee VIP Hour
8 p.m.–Midnight | All event attendees
CAM Raleigh
409 West Martin Street
Raleigh, NC 27603

After many years of planning and hard work, the Contemporary Art Museum is now thriving in Raleigh’s warehouse district.

CAM Raleigh’s Arthouse 2012 promises to be a spectacular event. The evening will include an unforgettable VIP hour, creative cocktails, delicious food, and groundbreaking entertainment. Arthouse 2012 will feature silent auctions filled with artworks donated by premier galleries, artists and collectors along with additional specialty items and packages. The event will be a gathering of friends, curators, architects, designers, dealers, artists, collectors, and patrons of the arts.

CAM Raleigh seeks to curate the most contemporary works of art and design possible—those still emerging, growing, and living. We hope to spark new thinking by creating ever-changing experiences that explore what’s now and nearing.
CAM Raleigh’s first-year anniversary party includes a silent auction featuring works by established, emerging, and cutting-edge artists, and an extraordinary selection of vacations, trips, and experiences.

The anniversary event’s theme is loosely based around 1970’s street art and celebrates CAM Raleigh’s home in the warehouse district. The event will feature live art by local graffiti artists, Victor Knight and Bart Cusick, b-boys such as Juan Matta, Napoleon Wright and b-girls breakdancing inside and outside the Museum to electro-clash inspired music. The museum will undergo a transformation, featuring a unique lounge resembling a wild graffiti clad train car. Carrboro-based video artist Adam Graetz is creating video projections for the event. DJs for the evening are Raleigh’s finest and most edgiest: DJ Chico, Logan Sayles, Jon Yu, and DJ Nixxed. There will also be a airbrush station where downtown Raleigh tattoo and air brush artist Mo will make personalized CAM Raleigh t-shirts and hats to commemorate this major milestone.

All proceeds will support to CAM Raleigh’s operations, exhibitions, and educational activities.
