In museums

Rare artworks from the 1760s through the 1870s will be on display through Feb. 17 at UNC-Chapel Hill when Young America: Treasures from the Smithsonian Art Museum comes to the Ackland Art Museum. These 54 major works--by painters such as Frederic Edwin Church, Thomas Cole and John Singleton Cople--trace the growing self-awareness and optimism of the new nation. The Ackland will host a free public opening reception for the exhibit from 6-8 p.m. Dec. 20. Call 966-5736 or visit for details.
