RALEIGH -- The state has agreed to give about 34 acres of prime real estate in West Raleigh to a private foundation that plans to develop much of the property to raise money for the N.C. Museum of Art.

The land, at the northeast corner of Wade Avenue and Blue Ridge Road, is the former site of the Polk Youth Center, a prison for young people that closed in 1997. Little of the prison remains, except for two warehouses and a tall, brick smokestack.
