N.C. Museum of Art


Author(s):
Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of Art had a unique beginning, one that was both scoffed at and praised. In 1947, North Carolina became the first state to appropriate funds for a public art collection, when the General Assembly approved $1-million to purchase works of art. The Museum of Art was not opened until the 1950s. Today, it is the cultural showplace of the state and is visited by over a quarter of a million people annually.
