Out & About: NCMA's 'You Are Here'

Out & About: NCMA's 'You Are Here'

Forgive me, for not blogging about this incredible art exhibit earlier, but you still have time to catch 'You Are Here' at the North Carolina Museum of Art, and you definitely don't want to miss it!

I wrote about this exhibit for Indy Week, but didn't share how amazing the experience is here. You can read my full review here on Indy's website, but here's a snippet of what I wrote.


Each piece in this exhibition is layered with sentiment, innovation, and individuality. Set aside an afternoon to engulf yourself, even though it will not take long to discover that, among all this greatness, you are indeed here.

At the media preview, I got to interview one of my favorite contemporary artists, Mickalene Thomas. She was so gracious to explain the background behind her multimedia piece that's featured in the exhibit. Combining video, textiles, audio and more, Mickalene created an experience that will suck you in and invite you to stay a while.
