We’re reimagining the People’s Collection, and your favorites may be on the move. If you’re visiting to see a particular object, please email help@ncartmuseum.org to confirm it’s on view. Staff will respond as soon as possible during gallery hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm.

Our Judaic, Rodin, Italian, Dutch and Renaissance, and Modern and Contemporary galleries will remain on view through May 29, 2022, along with a selection of works from the African arts collection. West Building will then close to the public, reopening October 8, 2022. Learn more about this exciting reinstallation project and related reopening celebrations. 

Artful Story Time

Join us for a lively story time inspired by art. Come look, listen, and move as we make connections with original works of art and children’s books read live in the galleries. Best for ages 2 and up with adult caregivers.

This session is presented by our friends at Drag Queen Story Hour. Join featured reader Stormie Daie to read books that celebrate all the wonderful ways you are you!

Stormie is a daughter of Durham’s House of Coxx, the first drag family of Durham, NC. As a queen she always strives to bring joy to her fans, the Stormie Chasers. Whether twirling and twisting like the wind on stage, showing her lightning-fast wit on the mic, or hosting Science with Stormie, where she teaches the amazing wonders of science, Stormie is a maelstrom of passion, education, and lookin’ good! As a DQSH queen, she is always ready to READ the children and have a great time learning and laughing!

About Drag Queen Story Hour

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like these, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress-up is real.
