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.

Public Art for Pollinators + People
The BEAS (Betty Eichenberger Adams Society) advocates for contemporary art in our community. Their support of a new project: “Public Art For Pollinators and People helps CAM / Raleigh to create synergy between art and agriculture. A pollinator habitat at Sunflower Field in Dix Park created by Courtney Evans of Tactile Workshop to house pollinators cared for by Leigh-Kathryn Bonner of Bee Downtown is the first in what will be a series.
Between fall 2016 and fall 2020, 89 women artists have been shown in solo and major group exhibitions at CAM Raleigh.
Flexing / New Realm, an exhibition by Kennedi Carter was funded thanks to the Betty Eichenberger Adams Society.
