New Central Carolina Community College Photographs Now Available

Thanks to our partner, Central Carolina Community College (CCCC), over 100 new photographs from the 1960s to 1980s are now available on our website.

These photographs heavily feature Paula Larke, a storyteller who was an artist in residence at the college in 1982. The Paula Larke photos show her at an event with elementary school children and seniors, performing on stage, and on a train in downtown Sanford, North Carolina. Other artists in residence in this batch include classical guitarist Gail George and Folk musician Clark Jones. The Central Carolina Community College, in addition to their Artist in Residence program, had the Visiting Artist program. Both of these programs were a collaboration between the North Carolina Arts Council and the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges.  Two visiting artists, saxophonist Gregg Gelb and playwright Ed Devaney, are featured in this batch.
