A small institution known for throwing big parties, the Contemporary Art Museum, Raleigh seeks to provide a flexible space for emerging artists. The museum's collaboration with the North Carolina State University College of Design allows them to keep tabs on local design and new media. Featuring installations in all materials, visitors are often allowed to touch, as well as see. Their openings, which have included food trucks and live music, are not to be missed.
