Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh is home to the most visible expression of Jewish cultural heritage in the South. Housed in the Judaic Art Gallery, the collection owes much to Dr. Abram Kanof, who championed its creation. The museum is one of only two general collections in the nation with a permanent Judaic collection.

Abstract:
At the corner of West Martin and Harrington streets in Raleigh's revitalizing Depot Historic District, an unlikely butterfly is emerging from its decades-long cocoon. The historic 1910 two-story brick structure built for Allen Forge & Welding Company and enlarged around 1927 for the Brogden Produce Company -- and more recently home to longtime occupant Cal-Tone Paints -- has emerged from its asbestos panel sheathing for a new incarnation as the home of Raleigh's Contemporary Art Museum (CAM).

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.
