David and I were SUPER thrilled to get the invite to shoot the staff party in the new wing of the North Carolina Art Museum. We live close to this museum and every time we drove by we would talk about how curious we were about the new building. The staff had a party to celebrate the new space the week before the main festivities for the public began. David and I were totally enchanted by this space... it is FILLED with tons of beautiful natural light, breathtaking art and plenty of space to take it all in. They are renting the place out for weddings and other events-- I would LOVE to get to shoot there again. Just stunning. You should book your event there then call me :)
I could not take my eyes off the three figures of
Jaume Plensa's "Doors of Jerusalem I, II, III"
When you get to visit the new space you MUST make a day of it and grab a meal at the museum's new restaurant, Iris.
It was awesome to get to hear the remarks from "those in charge" about the process of building the new museum wing and all the hard work that went into it.
It is always good to be aware of the hard work put into a final product like that.
I was surrounded by the many minds and hands behind the new wing.
And then it was time to REALLY celebrate :)
The youngest party-er in attendance got lots of love and attention...
I was happy to give the staff photographer the night off--
I think she enjoyed herself :)
Go check out the new wing of the museum!!
