We are pleased to dedicate this exhibition as part of the celebration of the North Carolina Arts Council’s 50th anniversary. The North Carolina Arts Council has worked to bring the arts to all 100 counties in North Carolina since 1967. We are grateful for their support and leadership, and we invite you to join us in celebration by visiting their 50th Anniversary website.
