Arts & Culture

Chapel Hill wears its creative heart on its sleeve – well, actually, on its walls. Many large murals can be seen painted on buildings throughout the town. Morehead Planetarium was the first planetarium built on a college campus and remains an important landmark. The Sorrell building on Franklin Street currently houses the Varsity Theatre, but the Varsity isn’t the only theatre to call that building home – the building has housed movie theatres since its construction in 1927. Museums, Art galleries, arboretums, performances at Memorial Hall…and we’ve only scratched the surface of what this town has to offer!
