From 6-8 tonight, June 5, the Contemporary Art Museum will unveil its building plans at Flanders 311 at West Martin Street Galleries and Studios. As part of the festivities Thursday night, Raleigh artist Miles Holst has set up “a free-range mural wall for attendees to draw, conceptualize + ideate on during the event.” Markers will be provided. Additionally,  CAM’s artist-in-residence, Taj Forer, will have a preview reception for Growth I: The Garden, which will open for First Friday.

Growth I: The Garden stems from a series of photography workshops hosted by Taj Foror in the summer of 2007 at Anathoth Community Garden in Cedar Grove, NC.  The exhibit features not only Forer’s collection of images, but also photographs and audio recordings created by the workshop participants. The final result as described in the press release “is an intimate documentation of renewal, regeneration and hope.” Taj Forer will talk about the project on Sunday at 2:30 at the NC Museum of Art. A potluck is scheduled at the project site in Cedar Grove on June 17th.

The Growth Project is a continuing effort by CAM to explore creativity in everyday interactions and experiences. As the project sponsor, CAM is facilitating activities that open up spaces for experimentation. This project was supported by the Goodnight Educational Foundation.

    CAM is like a Nintendo Wii. I could never have it after wanting for it forever (thanks, red tape!) and now I have just lost interest.

    I completely forgot about the CAM project.  I agree with the above poster that I’d lost interest.
