Aquarium Spotlights Federal Point

Kure Beach, NC – A new art installation, “Federal Point,” at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher spotlights the artistic photography of the Cape Fear Camera Club.
Club members documented images throughout Federal Point, in partnership with the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society and its Digital Image Project. Federal Point is the large peninsula between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, south of Wilmington, North Carolina.
During the project, a wide range of photos were taken from landscapes to businesses, architecture to flora and fauna. The images featured in the exhibit depict a more artistic rather than documentary exploration of Federal Point.
“Federal Point” will remain on display until Sept. 10, 2014. The Spadefish Gallery at the Aquarium showcases North Carolina artists throughout the year. Artwork that coincides with the Aquarium’s mission of inspiring appreciation and conservation of North Carolina’s aquatic environment is located on the second floor of the Marine Building.
The N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher is located just south of Kure Beach, a short drive from Wilmington, on U.S. 421. The site is less than a mile from the Fort Fisher ferry terminal. Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission:$10.95 ages 13-61; $9.95 ages 62+ and military; $8.95 ages 3-12. Free admission for: children 2 and younger, registered groups of N.C. school children, and N.C. Aquarium Society members. General information:
