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.....]

Triangle Artworks, Arts NC and me

Tomorrow, March 14th I  will be on a panel for a regional arts summit sponsored by Triangle Artworks and the arts advocacy group Arts NC at PlayMakers Repertory 250 Country Club Rd on the UNC campus. (FYI I joined the NC Arts Council in December as Senior Director for the Creative Economies team). Meg McGurk (Downtown Chapel Hill) and Jody McLeod  (Mayor of Clayton) will join me with Beth Yerxa of Triangle Artworks moderating. We'll be discussing and telling stories of how the arts matter to cities and towns in terms of both economic development and community building/placemaking.
