Hall of Fame
Bob was instrumental in the early stages of our community arts festival Artsplosure. As a practicing artist he has created works for numerous large-scale corporations including banks, information/technology systems, restaurants, and perhaps most recognizably he creates the original design each year for the International Festival.
He has received numerous awards throughout his career for his leadership and artistic contribution to our community. In 1993 he was awarded the Raleigh Medal of Arts and in 2015 he was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame.
Bob Rankin was inducted into the Wake County Public School System Hall of Fame in 2016.
