North Carolina Museum of Art
2110 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, North Carolina 27607
Join us to find out what the hoopla is about! Check out the new works of art in the Park, including interactive play structure «SCULPT. C» by Jaime Hayon and larger-than-life head sculptures «Awilda & Irma» by Jaume Plensa. Food trucks will be on hand (including American Meltdown, Baozi, Captain Poncho's Tacos, and Mr. A's Beignets), and beer, wine, and nonalcoholic drinks will be available for purchase. DJ Rang spins tunes while Cirque De Vol performers lead a «hoop jam» with hula hoops and their mini aerial rig.
While you're here, be sure to stop by our booth to vote for your favorite nickname for the adorable pig depicted in Hayon's «SCULPT. C»! (Have an idea for a nickname? Comment in this event with your suggestion, or tweet to us at @ncartmuseum using the hashtag #NCMApig.)
