Highlight: North Carolina Museum of Art

I visited the North Carolina Museum of Art back in August (and I’m so very belatedly sharing my trip). The stop was unplanned, and I cannot tell you how happy I was to have made the detour. It was just the perfect place to recharge and soak in the beautiful art. The pieces were incredible, and the space that the museums has is wonderful. My words are not justice enough – so I’m posting these pictures to entice you to visit (if you haven’t already). I’m already planning another trip in the new year!



The grounds are incredible – vast and filled with amazing art work. It’s a wonderful way to explore art outside. There is a sustainable irrigation system (pictured above) that is a fascinating way of managing water and weather – definitely worth walking through and reading about. Below is a Jaume Plensa work that is absolutely stunning…. this was the first place that I had seen Jaume Plensa. I’ll never forget the moment I rounded the bend in the museum park and saw this work – it is so beautiful… words and pictures do not do it justice.


The indoor collections are varied… I adore the sculptures (this gold one below is a fast favorite).







You can find the NCMA on their website and on Instagram (they are very responsive, and just lovely!)

Thank you so much for visiting – tell me in the comments if there is a museum that speaks to your heart that I should visit! ❤
