N.C. Art Towns

The 100 Best Art Towns in America

Three North Carolina cities — Asheville, Carrboro, and Wilmington — are listed in the fourth edition of John Villani’s The 100 Best Art Towns in America (The Countryman Press, Woodstock, Vt., 2005). Naturally, we think that there are many more communities in our state that are worth a visit from the arts-minded, but we should point out that none of the states neighboring North Carolina has as many as three towns listed. Not that we’re keeping score or anything.
