Renovations Close N.C. Museum Of Art Until April

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The North Carolina Museum of Art is temporarily closing.

The museum will shut its doors starting Monday to allow for almost an $84 million renovation and construction project that includes a new building.

The museum will reopen in April in its new, 127,000-square-foot home designed to allow in natural light to keep energy costs down but protect the work from being damaged.

In between, the museum will hold lectures, concerts and other programs on its own property and at other locations.

A grand opening to celebrate the expansion is scheduled for next April.

    WOW! So all NC state employees all took a salary freeze because the econonomy is so bad, yet the state can find money to spend $84 MILLION on a museum??? Thank you Bev. Perdue for helping working families! I am sure that money could not have been spent in any better way than to renovate a museum. I hope when state employees have another furlough this year they demand to know why this money couldn't have been used to help them. This voter is OUTRAGED!
