  • Downtown Raleigh art shows pollution in real time

    For about six weeks, walkers on Wilmington Street will be able to see the pollution in the air. A group of local and national companies is sponsoring an art installation known as “Particle Falls” in downtown Raleigh that measures the surrounding air quality and produces an illustration of it onto a a nearby wall or screen. Organizers hope Particle Falls, which is free, encourages more people to walk, bike or use public transportation to navigate the city.
