Symmetry Saturday NC Museum of Art

 The museum's architectural design is 'interesting'. It has undergone many additions and renovations since it opened in 1983**.

We love the museum trail, the out of doors art displays.  You would never expect to see the beautiful interior hiding behind the symmetrical exterior.

Original location opened in April  of 1956  in downtown Raleigh.   It quickly outgrew that location.

**Blue Ridge Road and the Stone Building

In 1967, the present-day Blue Ridge Road site was chosen as the location for a new building, as the museum had outgrown the Morgan Street location. Designed by Edward Durrell Stone and Associates of New York and Holloway-Reeves Architects of North Carolina, the new building opened in 1983, under the directorship of Edgar Peters Bowron (1981-1985). Stone used spatial experimentation with pure geometric form for the museum by using a square as a basic unit and designing the entire site by manipulating the square form. This was Stone's last major design prior to his death. After he died in 1978, the exterior was changed from white marble to red brick.[5]

2 Felines and a K9 on Nature Friday

Tuesday my nephews sent me a wonderful email with photos and a video.

Dearest Auntie HiC
It’s a cold, rainy day on The Hill.

We’re all cozy as bugs in the rug, because Dad built the first fire of the season.

Mom had to wake me because I fell asleep a little too close to the fire.
Do you smell roasting hotdogs?!? Teeheehee!

❤️ Pup

Dearest Pup
OMDs I think roasting handsome hot dogs are more appealing than roasting chestnuts.
You 3 dear sweet furry nephews are living your best lives there in the Georgia Mountains.  
No worries, full tummies, living and loving each day!!
Lovingly Auntie HiC
Please thank you staff for the excellent submission
