Last Chance to see Rembrandt in America
Wednesday, January 11, 2012, 6pm by visitRaleigh
The North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) has proudly displayed the largest collection of Rembrandt paintings ever presented in an American exhibition for the past few months, but this wonderful collection will soon continue on its journey, never to return to the East Coast. If you haven’t had the chance to see the Rembrandt collection for yourself yet, have no fear; there’s still time!
In an effort to allow everyone who wishes to enjoy this spectacular exhibition a better chance, NCMA is offering extended hours for Rembrandt in America during its final week in the museum, Jan. 16-21st. Each day, the exhibition will open at 10 a.m. and remain open until 9 p.m., with the exception of the final Saturday night, when it will stay open until midnight.
NCMA’s Rembrandt exhibition has been so popular among visitors and locals alike that the Museum recently welcomed the 100,000th exhibition visitor. Trust us, if all of those people took the time to visit, you can bet there’s a reason to make the trip! Featuring more than 50 paintings, this exhibition explores the often controversial issues of collecting and connoisseurship with Rembrandt, while also paying tribute to one of history’s great masters of art.
