Darius Quarles is a lifelong artist. Currently he works out of the Pleiades Gallery at 109 East Chapel Hill Street in downtown Durham. But there is now another amazing place to see his work, as fabulous freelance photographer and Clarion Content contributor, Chrystal Kelly, documents.
This amazing mural is located inside the Liberty Warehouse courtyard on the east-facing side of the new apartments. While the art is oriented inward toward building residents rather than outward toward the community, the subject matter embraces Durham history and legacy. The bricks it’s painted on are part of Durham’s foundation, the very sort they refer to when they say, “If the walls could talk.” (Oh. but lucky us, our cultural creators run deep; somebody has already made a documentary film about Liberty Warehouse.)
