Abstract:
In the first decade of the 21st century, Durham -- the state's fourth largest city -- is redefining itself once more. Situated in North Carolina's Piedmont Crescent on the edge of the Old Belt bright leaf tobacco zone, Durham is perhaps our most diverse city. It is a city shaped by the forces of tobacco, textiles, big business, great philanthropy, advanced education, technology and medicine, and now a resurgence of all aspects of the arts.

Abstract:
A new art installation by Jaume Plensa is under construction for the DPAC Plaza. The installation will shoot light into the sky and display lines from William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth. Some area residents question whether this really represents Durham or whether the art installation is about trying to compete with Raleigh who rejected an installation by the same artist. Others point out that the work is not as unique as it could be.

Abstract:
Patrick Dougherty, a Chapel Hill-based artist, has earned a global reputation for large-scale forms composed entirely of tree branches and saplings. The “stickwork” resembles the nests of enormous birds, primitive architecture, or even paintings. Dougherty’s latest work is featured on the south lawn of Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham.
