Downtown Durham has been the home of one hotel for a long time - the Marriott.  But now there are two.  A second hotel held a ribbon-cutting this week in a very historic spot.

The new boutique hotel is called 21c Museum Hotel Durham.  It stands in what folks call the old CCB or Sun Trust Building.  The 18-story hotel was designed by the same architects who designed the Empire State Building.   

Your Land/My Land

Oct 18, 2012

Rarely do art museums cover presidential elections, but if you visit the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Jonathan Horowitz is a multimedia artist based in New York City. His latest piece, “Your Land/My Land” is on display in museums across the country. Horowitz describes the exhibit as an interactive space divided by the partisan line. Jonathan Horowitz joins host Frank Stasio to talk about Your Land/My Land.

A new exhibit called “Girl Talk” at CAM, the contemporary art museum in Raleigh, explores the way women use language and communicate through the work of nine female artists. Women, specifically girls, are perhaps the most innovative users of speech and they are heavily influential on overall language trends.
