In celebration of The City of Durham’s 150th Anniversary of Incorporation, The American Tobacco Campus is pleased to present Landmarks in Creativity, an eclectic selection of artworks inspired by The Lucky Strike Water Tower from The American Tobacco Campus Collection.
The exhibit is FREE and Open to the Public.
318 Blackwell Street — Reed Building Art Gallery
Durham, NC 27701
The Lucky Strike Water Tower is one of Durham’s most famous landmarks. The structure has evolved from existing solely as a tobacco production staple into a beacon that signals family and friends to gather and enjoy the City of Durham and its unique community. The Lucky Strike Water Tower is a marker that is forever embedded into Durham’s ever-growing, diverse population. Similar to the water tower’s distinct location, each artwork included in the exhibition situates the viewer into a specific conceptual vantage point. Themes involving local history, social equality, and community are depicted using multiple methods of production.
Visitors to the exhibit are invited to share in the celebration by creating your own Lucky Strike Water Tower using the materials provided in the Reed Building Art Gallery and then hang your creation on the gallery wall where directed.
Landmarks in Creativity opened on Monday, January 28, 2019, and will remain on exhibit thought April 6.
