About this blog

This is my blog on the arts scene of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding Triangle communities. I'll focus on visual arts and the 2ndFriday Artwalk and other visual art events but that doesn't mean I won't chat about music, literary events, film or anything else in the local creative world. Please email with ideas, links, comments or brickbats. [I have comment moderation on so if you don't see your comment right away that means that I haven't had a chance to approve it yet. Sorry, but the spammers.....]

Yes one more art venue -- this time in Raleigh

The long, winding journey of the Raleigh Contemporary Art Museum ends this weekend with its opening  in downtown west Raleigh.  A gentleman and photographer named John Morris has a marvelous blog called Goodnight, Raleigh that has a lengthy post on the museum, its history and the development of the building with some excellent before, during and after shots. John begins his post...

This weekend the Contemporary Art Museum will officially open with a catered street festival and black tie event Friday, and the free admission official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday.
It’s my belief that CAM’s opening in this beautiful building in the Warehouse District is the greatest thing to happen to Downtown Raleigh since the new Convention Center opened almost three years ago.
This weeks Independent also has a couple of features on the museum here and here.  One of John's photos of the building is linked below.
