About the museum

The pinnacle of visual arts in Southeastern North Carolina is the Cameron Art Museum (formerly named Louise Wells Cameron Art Museum, and prior to that, St. John's Museum of Art), which opened its new facility April 21, 2002 and is located at the intersection of Independence Blvd. and 17th Street in Wilmington.

This 42,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility -- designed by noted architect Charles Gwathmey -- features a permanent collection of North Carolina and American art from the 18th century to the present, as well as the color prints of Mary Cassatt. Ongoing at the Cameron Art Museum are temporary exhibitions, educational and outreach programs and invitational exhibitions for the region's artists.

For hours and admission fees please see the Museum's website.

Why was this sub-index page prepared?

When Resource Library publishes over time more than one article concerning an institution, there is created as an additional resource for readers a sub-index page containing links to each Resource Library article or essay concerning that institution, plus available information on its location and other descriptive information.

See TFAO's Museums Explained to learn about the "inner workings" of art museums and the functions of staff members. In the exhibitions section find out how to get the most out of a museum visit. See definitions for a glossary of museum-related words used in articles.
