"The Woman Who Made Snow" highlights the historic Snow Building in downtown Durham and the woman who made it happen. One of the finest Art Deco buildings in North Carolina, the Snow Building of West Main Street, Durham had its distinctive beginning in 1930 at the hands of a woman. Mrs. Anna Exum Snow commissioned the building in the 1920s, a mere few years after women in North Carolina were given the right to vote. This sweeping social change was just the beginning of Durham’s transformation, and the iconic Snow Building became a stalwart witness to this city’s evolution. The exhibition, which run through April 2018, will feature two segments: At the Museum, the exhibition will help visitors understand Anna’s independent spirit during a time when women had no official voice. At the Snow Building, the exhibition "Through the Eyes of the Snow Building" will take visitors through the Herald-Sun archives to witness events within reach of the Snow Building over time. Tours of the Snow Building will be available.
