I’ve been to the North Carolina Museum of Art one billion(ish) times, but recently they added a completely new building, so my Mom and I went to investigate. I think the new building looks like an ugly storage facility of some sort, but I’m no architect. Maybe it’s so cutting edge that I just don’t get it!
Much of the artwork inside was the same old stuff moved over from the old building, but my new favorites include an assemblage of weird lumpy faces, a huge transparent man sitting on the wall, and a Mona Lisa made entirely of spools of thread. The sweet potato fries at the new museum restaurant are works of art themselves. Yum!
