Sketching at the American Tobacco Campus; Durham, NC


This is the yearly kick off for the Triangle Sketch Crawl.  We started two years ago and our first meetup was at the ATC. This is a favorite place of mine and I have to resist scheduling all our meetups here!

The American Tobacco Campus is located beside the Durham Bulls Triple-A baseball park, adjacent to the new 2,800-seat performing arts center, and bordered by NC-147.

American Tobacco's design and landscaping has collected awards for Best Mixed Use Development, Best Renovated Commercial Property, and Best Redevelopment Project. The combination of historic buildings with modern urban chic is unlike any space in the Triangle. Seasonal landscaping, especially in spring, fall, and at Christmas make the campus a destination for sightseers and for Triangle Sketchers! It is worth coming to the ATC for the fountains alone.  They are amazing.

Plan on meeting at 1:00 in front of the Mellow Mushroom Pizzeria. We will meet back there at 3:00 and choose where to go for our sketch share.

    Thanks, Deborah, for catching that! It was a scheduling glitch on my part. I have fixed it and we will be meeting in front of the Mellow Mushroom at 1:00. See you Saturday.

    Going to say “Yes,” though I have a potential conflict. Still, I would love to see this campus!
