Arts in the Triangle

The Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham areas have teamed up to cross-promote their world-class arts assets in hopes that you will venture from your corner of the Triangle and see what the rest of the area’s art scene has in store for you. Chapel Hill and Durham residents can enjoy a convenient exploration of Greater Raleigh’s art scene by traveling less than 50 miles away, and choosing what you’ll explore at the project’s website, www.ArtsInTheTriangle.com.
While Chapel Hill residents may be well-acquainted with their beautiful Ackland Art Museum, and Durham residents get to enjoy Duke University’s Nasher Museum of Art all the time, a quick car ride down I-40 will lead you to the North Carolina Museum of Art. Nestled in the country’s largest art park, the NCMA features rotating exhibits, a grand permanent collection and one of the best Rodin collections in the world. For those in Raleigh who have grown to love the NCMA, the Nasher and Ackland museums are wonderful, well-respected places to enjoy fresh museum collections you’ve never seen before.
For nearby visitors and long-distance travelers alike, Greater Raleigh offers several area museums and art centers, local art galleries and four disciplines of the performing arts that will bring out the Creative Genius in you. To learn more about the wide array of diverse art offerings in each corner of the Triangle, visit the Arts in the Triangle website. The Research Triangle Region of North Carolina has grown into a nationally respected hub for creativity and culture, and this is your chance to more easily learn how to explore each individual community within our booming Triangle.
