USACM Blooms, Art & Shop Tour
This tour includes visits to the JC Raulston Arboretum, the North Carolina Museum of Art and an opportunity to shop at Cameron Village.
In the cooler morning, our first stop is the JC Raulston Arboretum, a nationally acclaimed garden with one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants adapted for landscape use in the Southeast.
Next stop is quite a treat, the North Carolina Museum of Art: The 164-acre Museum Park is home to more than a dozen monumental works of art, with artists actively involved in the restoration of the Park's landscape and the integration of art into its natural systems.
Our docent lead tour is: Vive la France! Monet, Rodin, and More
Relax into a serene trip along the Seine, discovering the impressionists' views of French cityscapes and countrysides. Then surround yourself with the powerful, gravity-defying beauty of Rodin's figures cast in bronze. From sunlight-dappled canvases to the Rodin Garden's shimmering reflecting pool, your journey will lead you through the masterworks of France. C'est magnifique!
Lastly we will visit popular Cameron Village, since 1949 it has been a wonderful collection of boutiques where you can find art galleries, local pottery and other objects to remember your visit.
