Heads up, big-time music nerds: if you've ever wondered what goes into the creative process behind album covers, Durham Main Library has the perfect evening lined up for you on July 7. Maggie Fost, Merge Records' creative director, will discuss the creation of different album art in varying formats, from the 25-year-old label's early cassette tapes to more recent vinyl releases.

Fost will expand beyond Merge, too, discussing the cover art for other independent records from the past decade.  Superchunk and Merge co-founder Mac McCaughan will also weigh in on the artistic collaboration that goes into making the perfect album cover. The program begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public, with no reservation required. More information is available here.
