Writer, curator, thinker, and Durham insider, Chris Vitiello, and I started sitting down for Durham conversations at the end of last year. We push, inform, and entertain each other.

Durham is changing and we want to engage you, our citizenry, in a conversation about those changes.

We have set our Sights on the City.”

Our sails are filled by the cultural and political winds of change whipping through Durham. We are both delighted to live in and talk about this town. Our pal, filmmaker, Josh Hardt of Made with Hardt is running the production and making all the technical wizardry happen.

In Episode 15, we talk to Jeff Bell the Art Director of the new 21C Museum Hotel in Durham. The 21C Museum/Hotel, as we were shown, and you will see, is clearly a museum first and foremost. The collection of modern art is stunning. The number of works that will live in Durham permanently is staggering. It is a tremendous boon to our city, parallel to when Capital Broadcasting saved the American Tobacco complex.
