From October 17, 2015 through January 17, 2016, the North Carolina Museum of Art exhibited the work of the twentieth century Dutch artist, M.C. Escher. The exhibit featured over 130 pieces, including woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, and more, made between the 1920s and the 1960s. The exhibit was the most comprehensive collection of Escher’s work ever displayed in the United States.
In mid-November 2015, a group of Orange County activists launched a grassroots effort to stand up for the county’s low-paid state workers. The protest, called The Orange County Living Wage Project, hopes to raise Orange County’s minimum wage to $12.7-an-hour—the amount that most labor experts believe is a living wage in the county. The project plans to offer certifications for business owners who promise to meet this new wage for all of their workers.
