Once used to keep protesters out, this chain link fence has become a canvas for demonstration and revolving artwork in Carrboro. It too has turned into an allegory for local concern. The steel wire netting was erected when protesters stormed the building in 2012 to oppose potential corporatization of the property after developers applied to build a CVS on the site. The building previously housed WCOM 103.5 FM community radio which now broadcasts from the front end of the Art Center.
