You can now find copies of WALTER throughout the Triangle with a new collaborative art installation.

Thirteen local artists were given a blank canvas of a refurbished News & Observer rack—the result was a colorful and diverse array of public art that will house complimentary magazines each month in select locations. Each artist drew inspiration from their personal aesthetic, as well as the locations the racks would call home. Our boxes are in the wild from Person Street in Raleigh to Stone Creek Village in Cary, and we’re proud that our pages await your pickup within a piece of history.
Participating artist Emily Farrell says she felt the significance of the project right away: “As a Raleigh native and artist, I thought it would be a lot of fun to participate in this project that I felt was connected to a big part of Raleigh history. I mean, if you grew up here, you saw those N&O racks everywhere!” With this project, the WALTER team hopes you can now find us in your neighborhood and broaden the reach of our stories. And when you do, let us know: Tag us @waltermagazine with the #walterinthewild hashtag and we may just feature your photo!
