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. 


The North Carolina Museum of Art honors the legacy of Charles “Baba Chuck” Davis with BANTABA 2022! Led by Robert J. Corbitt III and the Kuumba Cultural Arts Collective, this special event features live djembe drumming and interactive West African dance. The performance is perfect for people of all ages.

(The word “Bantaba” was a favorite phrase of Baba Chuck and is loosely interpreted as “Come on, let’s dance!”)
