That's My World Tuesday: NC Museum of Art Rodin Garden

I have done a number of posts about the NC Museum of Art's major expansion and new building which adds to the space for the permanent collection and special exhibits.
I think my last NCMA post was in February a few months before the new building opened.
After a pleasant mother's day brunch this Sunday, Bill and I went to see the completed new part of the museum and museum garden.
For this post I thought I'd show the photographs of the new Rodin garden.
The garden adjoins the inside Rodin collection so you can wander in and out to look at the whole collection.
All of the landscaping around the new part of the museum was planted this spring.
It will be interesting to me to see how the plants grow and the gardens evolve.
To visit other parts of the world, please go to the home site for That's My World Tuesday.

There's a reason they call NC The State of the Arts after all. Nice work! I haven't been there in ages... and there's really no excuse for it, it's practically in my back yard.

Very interesting pieces of sculptures. I wonder whether they are carved out of stone.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and to answer the question about the materials, they are bronze.

It's good to see Rodins other than The Thinker or The Kiss! But I do wonder how one of them is going to do up his shoe laces! And I do like the spring greenery best of all.
