The gift of 30 sculptures (29 Rodins and one Camille Claudel) plus three loaned Rodins highlight the N.C. Museum of Art's new look. But a lot of other new art, including some commissioned pieces never seen before, await visitors to the museum and surrounding grounds.
The museum's first Picasso, a work created by Jaume Plensa and new pieces by Roxy Paine and Ursula von Rydingsvard are among the highlights. In all, about 50 new and recent acquisitions will be on view in and around the new galleries.
Here's a look at some artists and their work, which provides a sense of the international and nature-based aesthetic of the new museum.
