Celebrate Durham’s 2014-15 NC Arts Council’s Fellowship Recipients

Did you know that our Durham had six of the eighteen total winners of the North Carolina Arts Council’s statewide Visual Arts Fellowships?

Yep, Durham, representing according to Wolfram Alpha just under 3% of our state’s population, had over 30% of the fellowship winners.

Baller!

While we at the Clarion Content had not yet heard this, lucky for us Dave Wofford of Horse & Buggy Press (and co-founder of Bull City Arts Collaborativeand writer, curator, poet Chris Vitiello had. They wanted to do something to honor the Durham flavor of those winners. Only somewhat coincidentally, the Bull City Arts Collaborative (BCAC) was coming up on its 50th show since opening its doors. Given that the BCAC’s lease is up in the Spring and given the frothy Durham real estate market, it is no guarantee that they will be hosting another 50 shows.
