Castalia at Meadowmont management and tenants seek larger scale 2-D works of art to display in their large, open and bright first floor lobby space programmed and curated by the Durham Art Guild. The aesthetic and image of the space lends itself to larger works focusing on form, line and/or abstraction but is not solely limited to those specific characteristics.
