Questions About the Event?

Special CAM Exhibits – FREE on Race Day!

“A Time When Art is Everywhere: teamLab”
On view through September 8, 2019.
Visitors can observe the power of their creative imagination at the Sketch Aquarium Exhibit. Each participant is invited to color a drawing of a sea creature of his or her preference. Once completed, the paper is scanned and the image is projected onto a giant virtual aquarium. Visitors see their creation come to life and swim with all of the other sea creatures and may also touch the fish to see them swim away, or touch the virtual food bag to feed the fish!

“Minnie, Clyde, Annie & Vollis”
On View March 29 – September 22, 2019.
The common thread of the need to create is shared by four self-taught artists from CAM’s permanent collection: Minnie Evans, Clyde Jones, Annie Hooper and Vollis Simpson. Whether inspired by their dreams, religious beliefs, or their internal emotions these self-taught artists have shaped the creative culture of North Carolina and broadened the boundaries of Outsider Art to the world.
