The North Carolina Museum of Art is proud to share its staff’s creativity and artistic talent with the public.

This exhibition features 25 works by staff members who represent a cross-section of the Museum’s broad range of departments and professions. Together they reflect a diversity of approaches and techniques while showcasing a range of media, including drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, pottery, printmaking, and sculpture.

Like so many of those who live and work in our community, NCMA staff members are inspired by the Museum’s world-class collection each day. We invite you to visit the permanent collection to encounter the artworks that continue to engage and encourage creativity in all of us.

Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art. This exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions. Research for this exhibition was made possible by Ann and Jim Goodnight/The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fund for Curatorial and Conservation Research and Travel.
