We're celebrating our city's vibrant arts scene in the latest issue of Durham Magazine!
Our cover story is a profile and extended interview with Branford Marsalis, the legendary jazz musician who's made Durham his home for the past nine years. We spoke with him and his wife, Nicole, for hours at the Federal. He's a passionate, opinionated guy. Definitely a must-read.
Elsewhere in our special arts section, we give you an insider's peak at the painstaking process of acquiring priceless art work at the Nasher Museum of Art. The level of expertise on the Nasher staff is a key reason the museum at Duke has established itself as a major player on the world stage in just a few short years. That's on full display in this fascinating case study.
Also be sure to check out our preview of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, coming to DPAC in November. We talked to four honest-to-goodness Rockettes – all with local ties – about the joys and sacrifices involved in being a part of the world's most famous dance troupe.
This issue also includes the first in our three-part series on South Durham, a.k.a. the "other" Durham. We take a look at the varied dining scene, from some of the nation's best-known chains to excellent mom-and-pop ethnic cuisine.
