Sitting at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard and Umstead Drive in Chapel Hill is a recently finished unique memorial created by Liberty Arts Board member and founding artist, Michael Waller. It is a commemorative bench honoring the life and legacy of Joe Herzenberg. Herzenberg was a local historian, social justice advocate, and first openly gay elected official in North Carolina.
It’s officially time to get excited: welcome to the brand new Liberty Arts blog! Our artist collective is always busy in the studio or around the Triangle with new exhibits and projects. We have a lot of fun here and you are always welcome to join in.
Our Artists Cassandra Gooding and Paul Vernon, along with Alumni Artist and Board Member, Mike Waller all have pieces in the upcoming 27th Annual Sculpture in the Garden Show at the NC Botanical Garden. (http://ncbg.unc.edu/exhibits-and-art/#sculpture)
