Art Treasures in North Carolina  |  May 2–6

The Fralin Volunteer Board invites you to an insider’s tour of the vibrant central North Carolina arts scene with curator of exhibitions Laura Minton. Accommodations will be at the art-filled 21c Museum Hotel in the heart of Durham, which was voted one of the “Top Hotels in the South” by Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards.

This adventure will highlight some of the area's most significant museums and private art collections including the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, Reynolda House Museum of American Art, North Carolina Museum of Art, Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, North Carolina Central University Art Museum, and Ackland Art Museum at UNC. In addition to two private collections, we will also have an insider's visit to an artist's studio and a private garden. Acclaimed by Southern Living as the Tastiest Town in the South, we will sample some of Durham's and the area's noted restaurants, ending our trip at the private University Club.

The Kreeger Museum and the Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens | April 18

The Fralin Volunteer Board invites you to join us on a trip to Washington, DC. We will visit two local gems—residences that became museums. The Kreeger Museum is located in the former home of Carmen and David Lloyd Kreeger, designed by Philip Johnson with Richard Foster, and sits on five and a half wooded acres. The Kreegers amassed a formidable collection of 19th- and 20th-century works. The Sculpture Garden affords visitors the opportunity to experience art in a natural setting. A special show developed to support Washington-area artists, The Collaborative, will also be on view. Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens is a decorative arts museum located in the former residence of Marjorie Merriweather Post set on twenty-five acres. The collection’s focus is 18th- and 19th-century French art and treasures from Imperial Russia. Determined Women: Collectors, Artists, and Designers at Hillwood is the special exhibition on view. Additionally, thirteen acres of formal gardens extend from the house’s terraces and porches in a progression of “outdoor rooms” meant to complement the mansion’s interior spaces.
