Contemporary Art Museum, Raleigh

Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh (CAM Raleigh) is a multimedia contemporary art gallery in Raleigh, North Carolina. CAM Raleigh has no permanent collection but offers exhibitions of works by artists with regional, national, and international recognition.[1] The museum characterizes itself by the statements "We seek the most contemporary art and design. We work to curate it in a way that's always fresh. We create an ever-changing experience that is always in progress."

CAM is a collaboration of the College of Design at North Carolina State University and a private 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1983 as the City Museum of Contemporary Art. Since 2011, CAM Raleigh has been housed in a 1910 warehouse in downtown Raleigh providing 20,000 square feet of space.[2][3] The facility was re-purposed by Brooks + Scarpa.[4][5]

Exhibitions have included works by Angel Otero, Marilyn Minter, and Jonathan Horowitz.
