Durham is now spending more on public art, and as a result, residents and visitors can expect to see more art going up around town. In this new CityLife episode, Host Beverly B. Thompson sits down with Durham Arts Council Executive Director Sherry DeVries and City of Durham Office of Economic and Workforce Development Senior Economic Development Coordinator Brian Smith to talk about the value of public art, why the Durham City Council is supporting it, and why it matters to the Bull City’s economy.
CityLife, hosted by Beverly B. Thompson, director of the Office of Public Affairs, features information on current City issues and upcoming events that affect the lives of Durham residents. For information, call 919-560-4123, like Facebook, or follow Twitter.
