One night only! Don’t miss 50 works by Monet for $5.

The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh is one of only three U.S. cities to host Monet in Normandy, a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition featuring 50 paintings by impressionist master Claude Monet. For one night only, the Museum is offering college students a special opportunity to see the exhibition for only $5 (student admission is typically $12).


What: Monet in Normandy College Night

Who: College students with a valid I.D.

When: Friday, October 27, 5–9 p.m.

Where: N.C. Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh


Audio tours of the exhibition will be available for $5 at the Museum Box Office. The Museum will also be offering two dining options that night. Blue Ridge Restaurant offers an elegant atmosphere with casual cuisine (reservations recommended) and for sandwiches, snacks, pastries, coffee, and sodas visit Café Monet.

To ensure that you receive your reduced-price College night ticket, we encourage you to buy your ticket in advance by coming to the Museum Box Office (located at the Museum's main entrance) in person with your student I.D. College night tickets will not be available on-line or over the phone. Offer is subject to availability, and college night price is good only for Friday, October 27th from 5 to 9 pm.

The last feature exhibit I've been to was the Rodin one a few years back.

no^ I really wish we were though. I'm going to try on Monday and try to convince my supervisors into maybe doing it another Friday night like in November before exams or in January??? since it was raining last Friday night and not a lot of folks from UNC got to come.

Did anyone catch the band?

It was a jazz trio from the Durham School of the Arts. Originally we had thought about making "college night" more of an event with a reception and food but my supervisors decided just to cut the price to $5 and have it more laid back-- come and go event. Which works out great, but someone with the band didnt get the cancellation memo so they came anyways and since they wanted to play we just set them up in the gallery--- I was wondering if it was good or not.

It was a "one night only" admission fee of $5 for college students, all other times are $12 for students

Yeah, it's crazy the admission is $12, it's only $12 to get into MOMA in NYC as a student!

^well not *that* crazy... the show is underpriced as it is for general admission.

We're talking about 50 world renown art pieces by Claude Monet, some of which are privately own and never on public display.... $12 is good, $5 was incredible.

I agree that it is worth $12 to see Monet's paintings, I guess what I am trying to say is that I have seen more of them for much less at other museums, and it is sad that the NC museum of Art is so underfunded that it needs to charge students so much. Oh art and money, how sad that the two things have become so closely related.
