About this blog
This is my blog on the arts scene of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding Triangle communities. I'll focus on visual arts and the 2ndFriday Artwalk and other visual art events but that doesn't mean I won't chat about music, literary events, film or anything else in the local creative world. Please email with ideas, links, comments or brickbats. [I have comment moderation on so if you don't see your comment right away that means that I haven't had a chance to approve it yet. Sorry, but the spammers.....]

Like Gloria Gaynor, the Scrap Exchange says "I Will Survive!"
Many of you have heard the news that a recent storm collapsed (literally) the roof over the head of the Scrap Exchange. The city of Durham has condemned the building. Paraphrasing John Belushi in "Goin' South" the Exchange said "We don't need this stinkin' building" and promptly moved across the street.
It is not going to be easy for this real treasure of the left half of the Triangle. But they write "We’re operating from 539 Foster Street while we try to figure out what is coming next and what our options are."
To keep up with their journey back from the abyss check out their blog. Musical interlude below the fold.
