This afternoon I spent some time with Rodin at the North Carolina Museum of Art. The West Building, which houses the Rodin collection, opened in Spring of 2010. Surrounded by meadows formed of native grasses and punctuated with winding paths, this building is beautifully landscaped.
Multiple courtyard gardens reiterate the building’s emphasis on nature and openness. In this one the gravel floor, wispy bamboo and harmonious reflecting pool create a wondrous space in which to enjoy art and nature.
