Bain Water Project
The E.B. Bain Water Treatment plant is a designated Raleigh Historic Landmark, though it has ben neglected for many years. Now a new art project is developing dialogues about the structure and its place in Raleigh's culture as a new development of the property is planned. These are pictures from a tour during the early planning stages of the art project.
