Raleigh, N.C., Arts

There is a reason Raleigh has been called the "Smithsonian of the South." Led by a class of creative artists and innovators, Raleigh, N.C., is bursting at the seams with an endless supply of live performing arts and visual arts galleries. The destination is home to a must-see collection of museums including the North Carolina Museum of Art and CAM Raleigh, plus nationally-acclaimed presenting organizations such as Carolina Ballet and North Carolina Theatre. Raleigh also has plenty of locally-owned galleries and collegiate arts programs to explore.

Arts in Raleigh aren't just stand-out attractions. They're built into the fabric of the community everywhere you look. A community of dancers, painters, photographers, sculptors and curators have influenced neighborhoods all across the destination. Take it from local illustrator, artist and passionate mind Linda Dallas (owner of Linda Dallas's Art Studio) who says, "Creativity doesn't just live in the arts. Creativity lives in business. Creativity lives in science. This is what makes for a Smart City." 

To get started with planning your exploration of Raleigh's thriving, smart arts scene, browse the listings below.
