CAM Raleigh Opening April 30

Scheduled to open to public on April 30, 2011, the renovated downtown warehouse is an approximately 20,000 square foot facility that will accommodate all of the museum’s operational goals, including 3 galleries and dedicated educational spaces. Additionally, it will host changing exhibitions while expanding the existing, community-wide adult and youth art and design programming.

CAM is a collaboration between the NC State University College of Design CAM Initiative and the Contemporary Art Foundation (CAF), a private 501(c)(3) organization. The two organizations work together to form the partnership that is the public museum, CAM.

CAM was originally established in 1983 in Raleigh, NC as the City Gallery of Contemporary Art to complement other area museums and visual art venues by presenting solely contemporary art. CAM—a non-collecting museum serving the Triangle area and beyond—has since presented important exhibitions including both national and international artists. The name change to CAM came in 1996 as part of a plan to ensure long-term viability that included establishing a permanent home.
