Great art picks up where nature ends. ~Marc Chagall
North Carolina Museum of Art to tour the new building. (See his blog about it here.) Stunning light-filled galleries. Lush sculpture gardens. Shimmering reflecting pools- this is the description on the Museum's home page. In this new setting, the Museum's collection "picks up where nature ends" in such a way that they seem seamless. Light, shadow, reflection, movement, water - peaceful and tranquil even with the crowd in attendance. During the weekend's opening festivities, dancers performed outside and inside the building. This museum, created and funded by state legislation, is a blessing to the people of North Carolina. Admission to the permanent collection and museum park is free.
