We’re excited to welcome visitors back to a new Museum experience starting this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9. Learn more about the free opening weekend celebration and see a full schedule of events celebrating the People’s Collection, reimagined. On Saturday, we anticipate parking to be at capacity throughout the day and encourage carpooling and/or alternative modes of transportation.

Lunchtime Lecture-Container/Contained: Phil Freelon Design Strategies for Telling African American Stories

The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and the North Carolina Museum of Art require film and lecture program participants ages 13 and up to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 NAAT or PCR test result; test results must be within 72 hours of the event. Please plan to have one of these items in hand upon entry for Museum personnel.

Learn about Container/Contained with Dr. Emily Makaš, who led a team of faculty and students from the School of Architecture at UNC Charlotte in the research, organization, and design of the exhibition.

This lecture will be held both in person and virtually on Zoom. Please select an option at checkout.
