Art Explorer Thursdays

Thursday, 3/12/2020
10:00AM-11:00AM  
Come and bring your little ones to the Cameron Art Museum for a morning of story reading, museum exploration and art making. We gather at 10am for story time, then we head into the galleries to see what we can find – strollers welcome! We finish up our morning making art together.

Art Explorer Thursdays is designed for infants, toddlers and Pre-K age children, though older brothers and sisters are always welcome to join. We understand that all children have different attention spans – especially near nap time – so feel free to leave whenever is best for you.

CAM Cafe MUSIC: The Smoky Dunes

Thursday, 3/12/2020
6:00PM-8:00PM  
The Smoky Dunes are a local musical duo from right here in Wilmington, NC. Their musical repertoire and style draws on classic bluegrass artists such as Doc Watson and Tony Rice as well as fingerpicking pioneers Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. While they are both partial to their Martin guitars, they've been known to pick up a mandolin and a banjo. Whether it's on the porch or at a venue around town, The Smoky Dunes provide an eclectic set of music not often heard around Wilmington.

POSTPONED: Wilmington USCT Fundraiser

Saturday, 3/14/2020
4:00PM-6:00PM  
We will reschedule this event in the future, keep up via CAM FB and eNews: With your help, CAM will illuminate the story of the United States Colored Troops (USCT) and their contribution to the history of North Carolina through a dynamic figurative work of public art by artist Stephen Hayes.

Cameron Art Museum was the site of the Battle of Forks Road, a Civil War skirmish whose victory was won by the United States Colored Troops (USCT) and led to the fall of Wilmington. Many of the 1600 African-American soldiers who fought here were native to this area, and after the war, many of them stayed to settle, raise their families, and build community. Their impact is significant, yet their story is virtually unknown.

Enjoy refreshments and cash bar, listen to the sounds of Mangroove, and raise funds for the USCT Public Sculpture Project. This will also be a chance to meet Project sculptor Stephen Hayes, Brock Family visiting instructor in Studio Arts in the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University.

For more information, please contact hwilson@cameronartmuseum.org or john@cameronartmuseum.com or call (910) 395-5999 ext. 1003.
