Arts Events Galleries & Exhibitions Municipal Art Collection Public Art
Raleigh Arts plans and implements numerous programs and events throughout the year for all ages and abilities.
Raleigh Arts Partner organizations create all kinds of programs and events for Raleigh residents and guests to enjoy. From citywide festivals like First Night Raleigh to exhibitions, concerts, and theatre productions, from classes for all ages to amateur theatre-making, music-making, and choral singing, these organizations make sure there is something for everyone to see and do.
Additionally, the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitor's Bureau (GRCVB) manages a calendar that highlights the many ongoing events at art museums, galleries, and performing arts centers throughout the City of Raleigh.
Galleries & Exhibitions
Located on the first and second floors of the Raleigh Municipal Building, Block Gallery offers five to six exhibitions each year featuring works by artists who live in North Carolina.
Pullen Arts Center's galleries serve as a premier venue to showcase the broadest spectrum of visual arts by artists at various levels throughout the center. We provide artists with exhibition opportunities and space to engage with the work of other artists and the community.
Sertoma Arts Center showcases emerging artists living and/or working in and around Wake County, along with special themed exhibits such as the Sertoma Student/Instructor/Patron exhibit and Sertoma's co-sponsored artist group exhibits.
Municipal Art Collection
The Municipal Art Collection holds more than 600 fine art and public art pieces by local, state and national artists. Displayed throughout the City of Raleigh, the artworks include paintings, prints, drawings, textiles, posters, and large-scale sculptures.
Raleigh Arts' public art program supports creation and participation in public art — connecting artists, creative professionals, communities, and City agencies; strengthening Raleigh’s creative community; and supporting an equitable, vibrant, and meaningful public life.
Enjoy temporary public art in City of Raleigh Parks, greenways, and/or community spaces through SEEK Raleigh, an experimental public art program by Raleigh Arts.
