The N.C. Museum of Art’s (NCMA) education program has long been celebrated as one of the best in the country, but thanks to a new $1.9 million grant from the SECU Foundation, it’s about to get even better.

The grant will be used to extend the Museum’s art education outreach through the establishment of a vibrant, state-of-the-art Education Center that will become the portal for accessing the Museum’s world class collections of art, special exhibitions and educational programs both on-site and virtually throughout North Carolina. Cultural Resources Secretary Susan Kluttz joined Governor Pat McCrory and NCMA Director Larry Wheeler in accepting the grant from SECU Foundation Board Chair McKinley Wooten earlier this summer.

Construction is expected to begin in the Spring of 2015 for an inventive auditorium, adjacent studio, classrooms and distance learning center; all equipped with the latest technology, but you can connect with NCMA’s first-class educational resources today. The ArtNC website and kids and families calendar are two great places to start interacting with NCMA’s innovative art offerings.
