Last week I had the opportunity to visit the New “West Building” of the North Carolina Museum of Art. As a masterpiece member of the NCMA, I had the privilege to attend the “Preview Day” of the opening, and to enjoy more than 29 sculptures by Auguste Rodin, and artworks by Monet, Albert Bierstadt, El Anatsui, Jackie Ferrara, among others.
I have to say that I was really impressed with the exterior and interior galleries, more that 65,000 square feet of exhibition space, restaurant, store, and the Museum’s collections of antiquities, Renaissance art, European paintings and sculptures, 18th and 19th-century American art, African and Egyptian art, and Modern-Contemporary Abstract Art.
This building intends to be the new home of the NCMA’s permanent collection and is an improvement for the art community. I am glad that I am part of it and can share these pictures with you:
