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. 

Virtual Creative Processing for Families: Creating Intentions

Reflect together on big (and sometimes tough) ideas about the world and ourselves through art. This workshop includes guided group conversations about works of art with an expressive arts therapist and hands-on art making with a focus on exploration.

What can you envision about the year ahead? Explore the process of setting intentions in your family and create a weaving inspired by El Anatsui’s monumental Lines That Link Humanity that brings together your goals, plans, and feelings for 2022.
