The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, where I interned last summer, is closing on September 7th and will not reopen until April 2010. The shutdown will enable the museum to move into its new location and to prepare for the opening of the new building next spring. So if you haven’t ever been to the NCMA, or if you want one last peek of the museum in its current incarnation, get yourself to Raleigh stat!
The museum will still have performances in the outdoor amphitheatre during the interim period. Also, the museum park will be open, so if you like your nature with a dash of art you can still get your fix.
