Welcome Home, Caroline!

Saturday, 2/9/2019
11:00AM-2:00PM  
Join us as we welcome back our 27 foot tall whirligig, "Caroline". "Caroline" left town just before Hurricane Florence and is now back in her full red, white, blue and yellow glory. "Caroline" is North Carolina outsider artist Vollis Simpson’s last large whirligig and was originally installed on CAM’s grounds in 2012. After five months of conservation work at Wilson’s Whirligig Park, "Caroline" once again soars and spins as Wilmington’s largest sculpture.

Take part in hands-on activities during this family-friendly event including: Pinwheels (make your own or purchase one of ours), Revolving Serpent streamer making, "Caroline" coloring sheets, whirligig trivia and more activities will be set up outside. Learn about the physics of wind and "Caroline"’s response to our coastal breezes. Inside the museum, view three of Vollis Simpson’s smaller whirligigs up close, view the Brigade Boys and Girls Club’s new photography display, and enjoy brunch (10:00 am - 2:00 pm) with music in the Café by The Casserole (11:00 am – 1:30 pm).

Spend more time and experience the three Brown Wing exhibitions free of charge*—10:00 am – 5:00 pm. Either way, watch the whirligig spin, let your imagination fly high and learn about Vollis Simpson, the artist, and the NC Whirligig Park. Free and open to the public. CAM Grounds.
