Edvard Munch: Symbolism in Print Exhibition - North Carolina Museum of Art

The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh currently has a new exhibit featuring 26 prints by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (pronounced 'Monk') on loan from The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Munch is probably best known for his painting The Scream.

So let's go and check out Edvard Munch: Symbolism in Print. I will meet everyone in the lobby of the old building (the brick one) at 12:45 with my meetup sign.


Admission price is $5.00.  This is a timed exhibit, so they sell tickets in 1/2 hour time slots.  We will be attending the 1:00 time slot. You can buy them at the museum (if they have any left for that time slot) or online here:  http://www.etix.com/ticket/online/performanceSearch.jsp?performance_id=1656000

If you order online, you can print the tickets at home or pick them up at the will call window.

Exhibit Description:
"The great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863–1944) created some of the most visually arresting and psychologically powerful images in the history of art. Best known in popular culture for his painting The Scream, Munch explored through paintings and prints the turbulent emotional landscapes of modern life and the anguished silence of the individual."

"Munch was also an experimental printmaker of astonishing daring and virtuosity. Far from being secondary to his paintings, Munch’s graphic works are among his most forceful images. This exhibition, drawn from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, examines the major themes in Munch’s art as expressed in graphic media, principally lithographs and woodcuts. After a century the prints have lost none of their raw power to move us. They provoke questions—about life, death, love, sex, what it means to be human—questions that can never be answered but are still worth asking."

After the exhibit you can check out the museum's permanent collection (in the new building) which is free.  Or you can check out their other pay exhibit:  Still-Life Masterpieces: A Visual Feast from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston features European and American paintings and decorative arts from the Renaissance to the present.  Admission tickets are $15.  There are also a couple of other free special exhibits in the same building as the Munch exhibit.

    I enjoyed the Munch exhibit, but boy was that guy one messed up dude! Looking at the other exhibit around the museum was also nice, including getting to see an original Warhol of Elvis! Thanks for coming out everyone!

    I went to where I thought the museum was in downtown based on the Munch signs. Sorry for being a no show, but driving that way now
