At Amplified Art, there is an irreversible link between visual art and music. The various exhibits combine both mediums to create pieces that not only entertain and engage your senses, they also challenge you to become a vital, interactive part of the work itself.
This music-themed gallery is found in the heart of Raleigh's historic City Market District, and not only mirrors its artfully charged surroundings, but has become a work of art in its own right.
The Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts is a hub of artistic expression of the first order.
The Kennedy Center is situated within its impressive structure, and that particular theater features an impressive stage and multi-dimensional acoustics that make the more intimate performances like solo piano concerts and one act plays that much more vivid. Other entertainment venues within the event center are the Memorial, Fletcher Opera and the Meymandi; each hosts ballets, plays and other live entertainment.
The artists of tomorrow are here today at Gallery C. The clean, spacious presentation harkens back to a scene reminiscent of some of the best known galleries in New York and Los Angeles, but the artwork and the individuals who created them are uniquely Raleigh in so many ways.
Thirty-five of these rising stars have their work represented and they each have an interesting story to tell. The collection at Gallery C also includes some of Raleigh's most historically significant pieces from years past.
The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences gathers some of the most dramatic examples of nature's artwork and presents the wonder and mystique of the various exhibits in a way that will entertain and educate the whole family.
Ideas like our expanding universe, how our bodies resemble wildlife and how our oceans expand and recede make up only a small part of the entire sphere of subjects presented in this museum. The exhibits featured here are very much alive in more ways than one.
In 2010, Capital Opera Raleigh and the Opera Company merged, forming the North Carolina Opera. Star conductors, art directors and musicians comprise what is now the best of the best version of this organization, and that means that every time the opera is on, you'll see and hear top notch performances.
The North Carolina Theatre takes great pride in not only producing performances like Oliver, Evita and Hairspray, but they also have built a reputation for grooming great Broadway-level performers, as well.
The productions are first-rate affairs, and whether you're new to the theater or are a seasoned pro, you'll laugh, cry and consistently run to the ticket line to grab your seat for forthcoming entertainment.
