Raleigh, April 2012—After many years of planning and hard work, CAM Raleigh (Contemporary Art Museum) is now thriving in Raleigh’s warehouse district. To celebrate the museum’s first year, CAM Raleigh on May 11 will host Arthouse 2012, an exciting party and art and culture auction, whose proceeds will support CAM Raleigh’s operations, exhibitions, and educational activities.
Arthouse 2012 promises to be an amazing event in a fabulous and unique venue. The evening will include an unforgettable VIP hour, creative cocktails, delicious food, groundbreaking entertainment, and silent auctions filled with artworks donated by premier galleries, artists and collectors, along with additional featured specialty items and packages. The event will be a gathering of friends, curators, architects, designers, dealers, artists, collectors, and patrons of the arts alike. Valet parking is provided by Capital Parking.
Elysia Borowy-Reeder, CAM Raleigh executive director, says “Arthouse 2012 is CAM Raleigh’s annual fundraiser event that will help meet a deep need for support. With every pioneering effort, support is critical. CAM Raleigh is a celebration of the diversity of artistic expression that puts the artist in the center of the community. We are avid champions of artists early in their careers and we give them an atmosphere where they are encouraged to foster a cross-fertilization of ideas and dynamic interaction with visitors. Come out and help us realize our mission—it is an event that is not-to-be-missed.”
The anniversary event’s theme is loosely based around 1970′s street art and celebrates CAM Raleigh’s home in the warehouse district. The event will feature live art by local graffiti artists, Victor Knight and Bart Cusick, b-boys such as Juan Matta, Napoleon Wright and b-girls breakdancing inside and outside the Museum to electro-clash inspired music.
The museum will undergo a transformation, featuring a unique lounge resembling a wild graffiti clad train car. Carrboro-based video artist Adam Graetz is creating video projections for the event. DJs for the evening are Raleigh’s finest and most edgiest: DJ Chico, Logan Sayles, Jon Yu, Edwin, and DJ Nixxed. There will also be a airbrush station where downtown Raleigh tattoo and air brush artist Mo will make personalized CAM Raleigh t-shirts and hats to commemorate this major milestone.
