Abstract:
The newest addition to the North Carolina Museum of Art’s collection of outdoor art is a functional piece of art. The Lowe’s Park Pavilion was designed by Mike Cidndric and Vincent Petrarca of Raleigh to be a work of art but also to be used, experienced, walked through, touched, and as a shelter. This sculptural pavilion offers Park visitors a beautiful sheltered place to stop, rest, and reflect. The appearance of the shelter changes with the time of day and light reflected off of it and it will be used by staff as a place for the outdoor teaching of art.

Abstract:
The first major exhibition organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art in its new building will feature Baroque Paintings from the Bob Jones University Collection. The paintings all depict religious subjects and were collected by the university for moral instruction and as inspirational resources for students. These purposes serve many of the same purposes as they would have during the seventeenth century when they were painted. The history and characteristics of the Baroque Period in art and of life in seventeenth century Europe are also detailed.

Abstract:
The work a curator does at the North Carolina Museum of Art is detailed. Curators spend time looking at auction house catalogues, traveling to visit galleries and meet with artists, establish relationships with reputable art dealers, collectors, art galleries, and artists in order to acquire art for the Museum. Once they have identified a work of art they wish to acquire, the curators must go through a system of checks and balances in order to purchase the work. The system of checks and balances at the Museum is discussed and several curators from the Museum detail the work that they do.

Abstract:
The most frequent question asked by children at the Museum’s educational sessions is how they get the art inside the building. The process for how art arrives at the Museum is detailed here. The moving of artwork is well-planned, well-controlled, and well-insured. Most art comes through the loading dock at the Museum and requires a team to oversee the process and art already at the Museum is transported from building-to-building via an underground tunnel.

The exhibit starts with the events of September 11, 2001 with the “call to spend” by politicians through the financial collapse of 2008 to the present.
