The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and the North Carolina Museum of Art: What’s the Big Deal?

The Big Deal is that while you should visit New York this summer and take in the new Picasso exhibition which opened this week at The Met the same fine organization that sponsored the Picasso exhibition also made a gift of 30 Rodins to our hometown NCMA this past weekend. The Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation (www.cantorfoundation.org) and other patrons of our fine museum celebrated the pre-opening to ensure that their gifts had an appropriate venue. Having spent the better part of 3 days at our new museum this past weekend I can tell you that we are fortunate to have a world-class and spectacular (!) jewel of a museum in Raleigh. In fact, visitors to the area, even those coming through Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) with a few hours to spare can easily take in North Carolina’s newest crown jewel. 

What were we doing at the museum? Who do you think was entrusted to provide the safest transportation for the Patrons for the 4 day event? Yes, correct, All-Points Personal Transportation. And not only can we take you and your guests our professional chauffeurs can also give you a tour of the NCMA as well.

The NCMA has its Grand Opening this weekend. (www.ncartmuseum.org).

(PS: it is beautiful at sunset and into the evening as well.)
