Tuesday night, the Durham Co-op Market hosted the first of a series of film screening events. Visitors saw a short film called “Ugly & Wild: Learning to Love N.C. Fish.” Although it is only nine and a half minutes long, the film served as an introduction to the discussion of local, sustainable food. It features Locals Seafood, one of the Co-op’s seafood providers, telling the story of fish sourced and shipped in the area.

The Scrap Exchange's 'Packaging Space' promotes community and conservation

(01/24/18 5:15am)

Discarded objects fascinate Calvin Brett. He started exploring art seriously as a painter, but soon realized painting wasn’t his preferred form of expression. Artists like Thornton Dial and Patrick Dougherty, who created the stick sculptures in Duke Gardens, inspired Brett to move into assemblage and to use found objects in his art. Brett’s most recent installation is made of cardboard, plastered over the walls of The Cameron Gallery at the Scrap Exchange in Durham’s Lakewood District.

Last year, sophomore Katja Kochvar walked into the Nasher Museum of Art on the Monday of reading period. Instead of the usual open floor of the Great Hall and lobby area of the museum, she was greeted by rows of tables and chairs filled with students, accompanied by a low murmur of conversation, the clicks of fingers on keyboards and the scratches of pencils on paper.

K-Ville Farmers' Market hopes to increase sustainability on campus

(11/08/17 5:03am)

On a hot, sunny afternoon in early November, tents lined Krzyzewskiville as music streamed from a speaker. But it wasn’t a game day. While it was nowhere near as loud or boisterous as the hours leading up to a football or basketball game, the area did hum with activity surrounding the K-Ville Farmers’ Market Friday. Students swept through the area and milled about with friends, pausing when a table caught their eye and often carrying on conversations with the local farmers who displayed their wares.

Cuteness, costumes and canines abound at a rainy Barktoberfest

(11/01/17 4:03am)

Wet. That’s what best describes the third annual Barktoberfest held Sunday at Durham Central Park. Wet fur, wet grass, wet frisbees, even wet air that held the promise of more rain. When the downpour stopped for a moment, it raised hopes for sunshine and warmth, only to start again not half an hour later. Once the rain ended a second time, the air turned to a sharp cold. Dogs and humans alike shivered in their inadequate coats of fur and clothing.
