NC council looks for artists for 2 trail projects


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Arts Council is looking for artists to create works for two public arts projects that will be centerpieces of cultural tourism trails.

One commission is public art for the African-American Music trail in All-America City Park in Kinston. The other is for the Historic Happy Valley project and the Yadkin River Greenway Trail in Patterson.

Happy Valley is the setting of the ballad "Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley," which recounts the murder of Laura Foster in 1867 and the hanging of her fiance, Tom Dula.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Sept. 7.
