Art's New Place

Raleigh Contemporary Art Museum

Raleigh will get a little bit hipper this weekend when the Contemporary Art Museum - CAM Raleigh - opens in the downtown warehouse district. The organization behind the museum has been around for a couple of decades, but their new building marks a new era.

Host Frank Stasio talks about the CAM's past and its hopes for the future with Carson Brice, chair of the Contemporary Art Foundation Board of Directors; Marvin Malecha, dean of the College of Design at North Carolina State University; and Jay Gates, interim director of the CAM-Raleigh.

Amber Nimocks came to The State of Things in January 2009. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a survivor of 15 years in the newspaper business.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
