What's your dream

These public art projects always seem to come out more interesting and more valuable than they seem from the description. This one is especially vague as a dream could be anything from a hope for the future to a psycheledic fantasy. It will certainly be interesting!


Submissions for the Chapel Hill Public Arts Commission's Community Art Project – DREAM – are due March 18 and 19 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Chapel Hill Museum.

Many entertaining theories were hatched in an attempt to explain what happened to the almost 5,000 pounds of marijuana that disappeared while in the custody of the Chatham County Sheriff's department in 2001. Just to give you a sense of scale, that's 80,000 oz. Most recreational users buy a quarter of an ounce at a time. Maybe someone had a party and generously smoked out every single person in Chatham, Orange, and Durham counties. Probably not, but they could have with that much pot!
