This day trip to Raleigh offers the opportunity to enjoy the Nation's first state supported Art Museum's collection and immerse yourself in two special exhibits. It's the 10th year Anniversary of Art in Bloom. This event features stunning creativity of floral designers from across the state and nation who interpret works of art in the People’s Collection.
Themed the Decade Show, Art in Bloom 2024 celebrates the North Carolina Museum of Art’s 100th anniversary with additional large installations portraying the decades from the 1920s through the 2020s.
Secondly, you can enjoy an on loan exhibit from the Early Southern Decorative Arts at Old Salem. Layered Legacies - Quilts invites audiences to consider the multilayered stories stitched into quilts made in the American South between the late eighteenth and mid-nineteenth centuries. Featured are more than 30 bed coverings representing expressions of love, objects of exquisite craftsmanship, and material documents containing hidden stories of long-forgotten women, both white and Black, wealthy and enslaved, whose hands created and cared for these important textiles.
Finally, there will be time to enjoy permeant collections such as the 30 works by Auguste Rodin and the newest must-see attraction, five European paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries, the result of a donation that has been billed as “transformational,” including the museum’s first-ever painting by Pablo Picasso.
