North Carolina Botanical Garden hosts a free presentation on the elusive “trillium” flower as part of its LUNCHBOX Talk series. The ephemeral wildflower blooms in March and April and disappears underground by the end of June. The presentation features over 20 original drawings, paintings and illustrations on the Piedmont species. 


John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band (J2B2), the critically acclaimed quintet known for their “high lonesome sound” of American roots music, performs at The ArtsCenter
