A Visit to the Museum Park at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh NC

Museum Park a the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh NC. When you drive past the NCMA in Raleigh you can see several sculptures from the roadway.  I decided it was high time I checked out The Museum Park.
Quote from the NCMA website... "The Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park connects art, nature, and people to encourage creative experiences and human interactions. It features temporary and permanent public art installations by international artists, environmentally sustainable landscapes, colorful and contemporary gardens, miles of recreational trails, and a terraced pond." According to the park brochure, there are 28 works of art in this park.  I viewed 15.  I will have to go back and find the sculptures that I missed.

The park itself is lovely.  There are walking trails, areas to picnic, and of course artwork.  It made for a pleasant stroll on this beautiful spring day.
I saw folks relaxing on benches, a family picnic underway beneath the shade of a weeping willow tree…

Caleb and Nana's Adventures; Kudzu Children's Museum Chapel Hill NC

Caleb spent most of the week with me during his spring break last week.  The big question was what to do to get out of the house each day.   We decided to take local adventures.  We visited three museums in three days one of which was Kudzu Children's Museum at University Mall in Chapel Hill.  What a great place! Here is a quote from their website... "At Kidzu —make, build, explore and learn— an adventurous expanded Museum experience for age infant to tween. Kidzu’s new 8,500 square foot space is multi-sensory, play-centered, and focused on providing area children and their families, teachers, and caregivers an ever-changing menu of exhibits and programs that inspire creativity, collaboration and community. Kids Children’s Museum is a hands-on museum dedicated to inspiring young children and the adults in their lives to learn through purposeful play. "

North Carolina Trivia

UNC opened it doors to students on February 12, 1795. Wikipedia
As I was researching this I found two other universities that claim this title..
The University of Georgia received its charter in 1785 but did not admit students until 1801.
and The College of William and Mary ranks up there as one of the oldest schools.
UNC does hold the distinction that it was the first to hold classes as a State University.
All good to know.
I hope they ask you this question at your next trivia game.
