It's an excellent town to grow up in or move to. There are places with affordable housing and it's a very eco friendly place where people can walk around to local businesses and get to Chapel Hill eas...ily as well. There are great educational systems as well. See More

This place has everything an artist could desire. Bike friendly community and easily accessible by foot. Great eateries and coffee houses.

Definitely one of the coolest towns around. Any town where anarchists can hang banners on a fence, and they stay there for a while, is OK with me.

Check out Carrboro artist Ben Hamburger featured on Vitamin O.…/publi…/resident_profiles.php

Vitamin O added 11 new photos.

“Social practice is part of what I do,” says artist Ben Hamburger. “I am pretty influenced by sense of place.” Hamburger arrived in Orange County last August, j...ust as the protests about Confederate monuments, particularly Silent Sam on UNC’s campus, erupted. As an artist interested in painting landscapes, especially southern landscapes, his exploration of the topic felt “unavoidable.” Hamburger uses the images of the removal of these statues as a way to think critically about the status quo. As he notes on his website, the societal influence of the monuments “becomes apparent as people react to their contentious disappearance.”
Not a history buff or “civil war head” himself, Hamburger has enjoyed opportunities to talk with local professors who are “super knowledgeable about the subject.” “It is really cool to engage with the academic community.” He said, “The whole process has really increased my awareness of what these monuments mean and what their removal means, and why and how they were put where they were.”
Hamburger enjoys plein air painting, especially for its usefulness in learning about and adapting to his new home. “Starting to make stuff is one thing. Getting established is another.” With plein air painting, “You become a spectacle when you are out there painting.” People stop and talk to him. Hamburger notes this is a distraction for some artists, but he embraces it as a way to meet people and learn about his environment.
Hamburger is interested in change, fluctuation, and transition. He is also a community art educator, teaching at the Carrboro Arts Center and the Durham Arts Council. His current two week residency has children discussing what monuments are, what values should be upheld, and each student decides who they want to memorialize. Hamburger helps them look at display options such as bases or pillars, build their monument, and make choices about inscriptions.
Some of Hamburger’s paintings from the monument series were recently featured at the Eno Gallery in Hillsborough. Hamburger does not know how long he will be working with this content. One thing he realizes: “I spend more time thinking about this series than I do painting it.”

The police department received an email reporting suspicious activity this week.
Remember, you should not report any suspicious activity through email, Faceboo...k, Twitter, Nextdoor, or by calling the office number. Officers might not get the message until the next day, which means they couldn't help you when you needed it.
Please call 911 to report anything suspicious, to report a crime, or to ask for assistance! #CarrboroSafe Town of Carrboro, NC

Together we can turn the lights out and enjoy celebrating earth hour as a family. Here are some ideas for what to do as a family for Earth Hour.

While saving a few dollars and a handful of kilowatt hours on your electric bill every month may not seem like a huge deal in itself, the savings grow large rapidly when many people join the movement.Show your love for the planet on 24 March, 8.30pm and switch off lights for an hour! #EarthHour #Connect2Earth…

The light bulb that saves the most energy is the light bulb that is not humming. Building the habit of turning off lights when you are not using them may take some time to get used to, but the savings in energy and money will make the habit worth it. It is also important to know which types of light...

If we don’t take action on climate change, we could lose almost 50% of species from the world’s most precious places by the end of this century.
