The students viewed the permanent collections from contemporary art to the fluid sculptures of Rodin. The 164-acre Museum Park is home to more than a dozen monumental works of art, with artists actively involved in the restoration of the Park’s landscape and the integration of art into its natural systems.

The NCMA’s permanent collection had its beginning in 1947 when the North Carolina General Assembly appropriated $1 million for the purchase of works of art, making North Carolina the first state in the nation to use public funds to buy art.

They all took part in a beautiful afternoon of learning about various collections of artwork & culture.
