As Wake County’s 2019-2020 Artist in Residence, photographer Christopher Janaro captured moments illuminating the vibrance and diversity of Wake County’s artistic landscape – predominantly through the lens of United Arts. His photographic journey through the arts began in August 2019 when the arts and festivals were collective experiences and ended in June 2020 during the pandemic and a summer of social justice activism, when artists responded with creativity, resilience, and protest.
