3/24/2015 10:00 AM NCMA's Robert F. Phifer Collection Event The Phifer name has ties to the area that go back over two centuries. Beginning March 24, a collection of art originally donated by Robert Fulenwider Phifer (1849-1928) will be on loan from the North Carolina Museum of Art, and exhibited in the Concord Museum by Historic Cabarrus. This exhibition, located in the Historic Cabarrus County Courthouse at 65 Union Street S, is made possible by the efforts of Judge Marty McGee together with the Historic Cabarrus Association and Cabarrus Arts Council. Phifer, the first benefactor of the North Carolina Museum of Art, was born in Concord and the fifth of seven children. His great-grandfather, Martin Phifer, Jr. was personally visited at his home known as Red Hill by General George Washington on his southern tour in 1791. This visit is part of Concord's history included in the Union-Market Passageway murals completed by artist Sharon Dowell in 2013. The public exhibition will kick off the same night as Cabarrus Arts Council's March Art Walk, and continue through July 25. On Saturday, April 18, free bus tours will be available at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., taking participants through First Presbyterian Church's Memorial Garden in Downtown Concord, the City's Oakwood Cemetery, and the Phifer family cemetery located in the area near Red Hill. Local experts and historians will share the story of this family and these historical sites at each stop and during the bus rides. For more information about this exhibition and associated activities along with a special preview event on March 26, please visit historiccabarrus.com.
