2019 Art Moves Midtown Results

Come out for this fun Thursday evening event in Midtown Wilmington! The Art Moves Midtown 5K will feature some of Wilmington’s most scenic mileage of the Cross City Trail as it loops through Halyburton Park. The Minnie’s Mile will be a flat course on the Cross City Trail and serves to raise awareness of local visionary artist, Minnie Evans. The CAM campus will be a lively spot with music and art all around. Exhibitions at Cameron Art Museum are FREE before/after your race. This race also includes art activities & games for kids of all ages, artist-made finisher’s medal, and post-race snacks for participants.

While Art Moves Midtown is a family-friendly event, this is a great course for all ages and all paces!

The Eye Learns – Modernist Prints from the Louis Belden Collection

San Francisco art collector Louis Belden gave his art collection, the gift of his lifetime, to our community. This collection of prints invites us to share in his passions for art, for collecting, for learning, and for giving back. These 134 modernist prints by 51 artists reveal Belden’s journey and are primarily presented in the order he acquired them. The exhibition begins with his bold 1971 acquisition, Art Beat, a neon orange silk screen by Nobu Fukui. By the mid-1990s, he had acquired work by the leading artists, the change-makers, the radicals, such as Josef Albers, Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, and Wayne Thiebaud. His final acquisitions of work by Richard Diebenkorn, Jasper Johns, and Ellsworth Kelly show the continuing growth and refinement of the collection.

Structure in Space and Time – Photography by Phil Freelon

One of the most celebrated architects of our time, Phil Freelon designed spaces that enhanced communities and championed diversity and inclusion. His work, which included museums and cultural institutions, told the story of the American people. Freelon was dedicated to bringing both beautiful and functional high-quality designs into everyday life for all people. Throughout his career, Freelon found photography essential to his design vision and creative process.

Unfolding Noguchi

One of the visionaries of 20th-century American modernism, Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) developed a uniquely open-ended, and forward-looking perspective on global culture. This exhibition provides insight into his genius and artistic exploration of form and material over his sixty year career. From bronze, granite, and aluminum to his paper and bamboo Akari light sculptures, Noguchi pushed the boundaries of what sculpture is and how it is integrated into daily life.
