Pop! Fuquay-Varina Downtown
Ten storefront window installations by artists from around the Triangle!
With the Fuquay Mineral Springs as inspiration, North Carolina artists have created new work for the first Pop! Fuquay-Varina Downtown art series, filling empty and idle storefront windows with site-specific art.
The springs were discovered around 1858 when Stephen Fuquay was plowing his fields in what is now downtown Fuquay. The mineral spring soon became a focal point for the town. Today a picturesque park surrounds the spring and nearby you can see several historic buildings. Now offices and housing, these were originally built as accommodations for people who came to “take the waters” for health benefits.
