North Carolina Museum of Art Visit

This past weekend I had my first opportunity to visit the newly opened permanent collection facility at the North Carolina Museum of Art. The museum had been closed for several months as the collection was transferred from the old facility into the new one. It reopened on April 24th to much fanfare.

The gallery spaces are beautiful, with quiet exterior courtyard spaces for sculpture and gardens. While I don't find the structure particularly attractive from the outside, I was very impressed with the interior. The former building is currently under renovations and will reopen in November as a home to temporary exhibitions. The first will be an exhibit of works by famed illustrator Norman Rockwell.
