The Betty Eichenberger Adams Society

CAM’s Women-Only Membership

The Betty Eichenberger Adams Society (BEAS) is CAM’s women-only membership group with the mission to generate, educate, and promote interest in contemporary art in Raleigh and beyond. The BEAS seek to establish and maintain a base of support for CAM, becoming pillars of strength for CAM now, and for future generations.


Betty Eichenberger Adams is an extraordinary example of a visionary who embraced contemporary art wholeheartedly. As an artist, activist, and arts educator, she was one of the first advocates and supporters of CAM Raleigh and a bold arts advocate in North Carolina. The society honors her legacy as an artist, arts educator, and community leader.

The BEES + the BEAS
Public Art for Pollinators + People brought to you by the BEAS

The Betty Eichenberger Adams Society (BEAS) is excited to announce our first public project, Public Art for Pollinators + People! Our goal is to create contemporary art that supports bee habitats in public spaces.

It’s our moment to take a stand.
Art matters. Pollinators matter.
Together we can make a difference.

If you would like to support art, our parks and our environment, join the BEAS or donate to the Public Art for Pollinators + People initiative by contacting Tamar Harris Warren at or 919.261.5917.

Through this initiative led by the BEAS, we seek to engage our community in contemporary art supported in natural environments. Each installation will host not only art from an accomplished artist in our state (selected by CAM’s Exhibitions Director Eric Gaard), but will contain a state of the art bee hive, that meets specifications from Apiopolis. Apiopolis is Raleigh’s own pollinator habitat organization supporting sustainable conservation, collaboration and community throughout the Triangle area. We will also look to both corporations and individuals to sponsor and participate in these installations.
