It’s hard to miss the wall art in Durham, North Carolina. Even if it’s not your thing (and it is my thing), you can’t help but notice. The visitor’s center has these great little booklets with a lot of murals mapped out. I programmed a walking route into my phone GPS and enjoyed my tour of the city that way. Understand that I found much more art than what was covered in the booklet. Sadly, two of the murals I sought have disappeared beneath new construction, so my guess is that the booklets must repeatedly be out of date due to new art and human progress.
Take a look at these murals. Some are really great:
There were a couple of murals I could not see for the foliage.
I think tapas is the best idea ever. Just order a bunch of small plates and share, and order more till you’re full. 🙂
As I mentioned to Lou in my earlier post, every time I walked out the door of the hotel, I found more art. It’s everywhere in Durham! In fact, as I have reviewed my photos, I keep finding more public art that I did not include in the last post. If you like sculpture, go back and take a look at the last post I made from Durham, because I have added more images.
