It has been a huge week for A Community Portrait of Durham! Not only are we about a week away from the big day, we had some new sponsors add their support this week!
Urban Durham Realty became a Curator of the project ($250+), Bull Durham Custom Trailers became a Supporter ($50+) and the Duke University Interfraternity Council came to our Tuesday night meeting and offered hundreds—YES, hundreds!—of volunteers from 15 fraternities for the Oct. 3 event. The Independent Weekly also ran a free 1/8 page ad for the project.
We were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support of the community and can't wait to bring it all together!
We also announced two art-making events for this week. The first is Friday night from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Drowse and Browse, 2605 N. Roxboro St., and the second begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday outside The Scrap Exchange, 548 Foster St.
Finally, we got some pretty exciting feedback from Lucy Walker, the director of the documentary "Waste Land", which inspired this project. And yes, we took a screen grab! Check it out.
Eight days and counting!!!
