Trip to North Carolina Museum of Art for "Porsche By Design" Exhibit
Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Fasten your bonnet and check the tire pressure, the North Carolina Museum of Art will soon feature a special exhibition of german automotive expression. “Porsche By Design” is a new show celebrating the unique well known sports car from Stuttgart. The exhibition includes 20 actual vehicles, some owned by famous U.S. celebrities. We’ll drive a custom porsche that looks like 15 passenger van over to Raleigh on Tuesday, November 12th. We’ll enjoy a docent led tour of the exhibit. If that’s not enough to flip your wig then hold on, there’s more. In West Building the Museum presents a series of magnificent loans selected by NCMA Curator of European Art David Steel from the Chrysler Museum in Virginia. Interspersed throughout the galleries, this array of 18th- and 19th-century paintings and sculptures by such masters as Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Francesco Bertos, Mary Cassatt, and Auguste Rodin is strategically installed next to related stars in the permanent collection, inspiring dialogue among the works. Please bring spending money with you -- we’ll surely stop for a snack and have lunch somewhere in the area. And we’ll arrive back in Asheboro by early evening. The cost of the trip is $40 for members and $50 for non-members. Register and submit your payment by Tuesday, October 29th. And please remember to buckle up.
