The Enduring Legacy of Julian Price

May 25, 2016

The Asheville community will honor a man who was largely responsible for many of the landmark  downtown Asheville businesses of today.  Julian Price died in 2001, but his legacy endures as Asheville has transformed from a sleepy mountain town to a booming arts and culture hotspot.  The Orange Peel music venue downtown will host the premiere of a new documentary about Price on Thursday, May 26, 2016 at 7:30.  I spoke with Price's widow, Meg MacLeod, filmmaker Erin Derham, and his old friend and colleague Karen Ramshaw with Public Interest Projects.  The full piece is above, and complete interviews are below.  In the coming days, this page will be updated with a downtown Asheville walking tour with Ramshaw, and archival interviews of Julian Price himself.
