Thursday, April 25, 7:30pm Interactive Light Installation in the Garden.

Join artist Jaclyn Bowie for an immersive and collaborative project that will be projected on the exterior walls of the Gregg Museum.

Thursday, May 9, 6pm The River Cube Project – Meet the Artists

At 6pm Christina Weisner and Matt Keene will be on hand to talk about their ambitious quest, The River Cube Project, the 275-mile journey of a unique environment created and influenced by relationships between nature, people, and technology. which will take them down the entire length of the Neuse River from Falls Lake to Ocracoke Inlet, paddling a floating conceptual sculpture that is also a research lab. The sculpture itself will be on view in the Gregg Museum lobby all day. May 9, 2019 10-8pm

Over the course of approximately four weeks, the River Cube will drift or be paddled, peddled and sailed down the river by artists, scientists and other guests who will gather diverse social and environmental data and information that will become part of the Project’s archive. The River Cube Project will stop in cities, small towns and wilderness along the “route” to collect such information and to join and create dialogue about the river and relationships it creates and hosts. Once the vessel crosses through the Ocracoke Inlet, its journey will be complete.
