A few photos from the grand re-opening of the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh. The museum closed last year so that the permanent collection could be moved to a new building. And what an amazing building it is!
I've always loved this museum - it has a nice collection with several works that I love to visit again and again. But the best part is that it's surrounded by a 164-acre Museum Park with hiking trails and all kinds of cool enormous sculptures. My nephews and I love to hike this art trail. The museum also has an outdoor amphitheater for concerts and movies in the summer. And now, in addition to the new ultra-mod building, there are close to 100 more works of art, both inside and out.
The light inside the new building is incredible.
The new building is surrounded with sculpture gardens and reflecting pools.
During the re-opening weekend, a dance troupe was there peforming both inside and out; it was fun to see.
Stainless steel tree on the hill - I love this.
More to come...
