Reason #10 for visiting Greater Raleigh during 31 Days of Art:
You can’t afford to buy a Porsche, but you enjoy looking at them.

Ladies, plan a “31 Days of Art” weekend your man will never forget right in the heart of Greater Raleigh––starting with the Porsche exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA), opening on Oct. 12. As a premier international vehicle known for style, innovation and artistry, Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed explores the history and development of the Porsche lineage from the 1930s to present day.

NCMA’s first-ever design show features 22 automobiles including those owned by Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen, Miles Collier, Janis Joplin, as well as the one-of-a-kind Panamericana concept car on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. The exhibition accentuates rare automobiles, their innate beauty, aerodynamic design and engineering genius. It’s a can’t miss opportunity for car (and art) lovers!

On display in the East Building, Meymandi Exhibition Gallery. Museum hours: Tues.-Thurs., 10am-5pm; Fri., 10am-9pm; Sat.-Sun., 10am-5pm; Closed Mon. Tickets are $18 per person and on sale now.
