In accordance with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 117, and to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in North Carolina, the NCMA is closed until further notice. While the Museum Park remains open for walking, running, and biking, visitors should practice extreme caution and take strict social distancing measures. See a full list of affected programs and events at ncartmuseum.org/covid19.
We’ve reimagined our Art in Motion Sculpture Race to take place in cyberspace, and in your homes! Celebrate art and human innovation by building a dynamic sculpture. The only requirement is that your creation be inspired by a work of art from the Museum’s collection. Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories! Even if you don't enter the race, join us for the virtual Exhibition and Awards Ceremony to watch the competition unfold and see who wins. Ends at 8 pm.
How it works:
• Build a homemade dynamic sculpture of any shape, size, or material inspired by an object from the Museum’s collection. (If your sculpture itself does not move, it needs to have a dynamic component, such as a piece that spins like a whirligig, flowing fabric, a stop-motion video, etc.)
Although the galleries are temporarily closed, we invite you to experience your NCMA from home. Through these virtual offerings, inspired by the Museum collection, we hope to foster contemplation, meditation, and creativity.
