The new galleries building is getting all the attention, but before the year is out some of the spotlight will shift back to the old building.
This fall, the site of the former main museum will reopen after renovations as home to an unprecedented five exhibitions at once.
It's now being called the East Building, and it will be the place where temporary exhibitions will be held, along with education and public programs and staff offices. A permanent space there will also be set aside for North Carolina artists, both emerging and established; solo and themed shows will rotate twice a year.
All five of the new shows will open Nov. 7 and run into next year.
