New CBC Art Collection Featured in Raleigh Magazine
The new art and architecture at CBC is now the focus of an article in Raleigh’s WALTER magazine. “Working with art: Art everywhere” features the addition to CBC’s Western Blvd campus, designed by Chapel Hill architect Philip Szostak, and the contemporary art collection within its walls.
Contemporary Art Museum foundation director Marjorie Hodges helped CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon procure the textiles, sculpture, installations and paintings in the buildings. Flanders Gallery owner Kelly McChesney, Szosak and CBC Director of Community Relations Loretta Harper-Arnold worked as a team with Hodges and Goodmon on the selections.
“In 1959, when Capitol Broadcasting Company founder A.J. Fletcher opened a lush and expansive azalea garden to the public on five West Raleigh acres surrounding WRAL-TV studios, he said he did it to pay ‘a tribute to beauty for beauty’s sake.’” begins the article. “Today his grandson, CBC president and CEO Jim Goodmon, is filling the newly expanded headquarters surrounded by that garden with contemporary art. It’s a tribute of his own: to the artists of North Carolina, and to his employees.”
