The City of Raleigh Arts Commission has partnered with the students and staff of the NC State College of Design Advanced Media Lab to create a mobile media showcase of 12 public artworks in the City’s public art collection. The Q-Art Code project will allow the City to raise the public’s awareness about the impact of public art and its cultural contributions to the City of Raleigh.It only includes 12 public art pieces but perhaps they'll add more to the map even if they are unable to include videos of the pieces. Still, it's an interesting introduction to Raleigh's public art and some of our best public artists within the state.
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.
