That's My World: Homes for the Arts in Greensboro, NC

Photobucket

I recently had some time to kill in Greensboro, NC while waiting for a delayed flight to arrive. My daughter and I wandered around downtown Greensboro, and I took these shots of the Greensboro Cultural Center. To see the same place with brilliant blue skies you can visit Greensboro Daily Photo Cloudless Sky at the Cultural Arts Center post which is by another North Carolina blogger and was a SkyWatch Friday entry in April.

I was very intrigued by the whimsical building (shown below) which houses the Greensboro Children's Museum. This part of downtown Greensboro, NC reminds me of downtown Raleigh, NC which is my city. Not so much the architecture but the way both North Carolina cities have a thriving art's area, complete with a Children's museum as well as a place where artist work and show their work.

I would not be surprised to hear the growing art district. With all the academe around, I'm sure there's a lot of interest in arts.

We were talking about NC over dinner last night with friends who have relatives living there. Someone even suggested we move there, since it's the happening place :)

Thanks for discovering my post before I even entered the link. Yeah, I do a lot of my meme at www.ewok1993.wordpress.com

That looks like a really great place. I like the bottom two pictures best because the building are very interesting. I think art is very important so this is right up my alley.

I think it is a great idea to incorporate art in different areas. I love the last photo, I could see a face smiling.

The children's museum building is wonderful! I agree - how wonderful to have a thriving arts area to encourage play and creativity and give artists a place to show their work.

If the exhibits inside the Childrens Museum are as interesting as the exterior, it must be quite a hit.

I want to be there too! Those green roofs look like they are in some dream land.

Some interesting shots.

Wolynski said...

What cool structures - yeah, I guess art should be housed in an artistic buildings. It's great to see art districts popping up all over the country - it's the one thing that gives a place a sense of community. Great post.
