As I sit here at my desk listening to the familiar THUMP, THUMP, THUMP of campers’ feet, optimism grows inside me!
The colorful art on the walls.
The giggles throughout the halls.
The thank you notes from artists and arts organizations displayed on my office door.
All gentle reminders to be appreciative of the joy and beauty surrounding us be it on our exhibit walls, the masks of our campers, or in the hearts of art lovers on Third Friday. Our building is coming alive again because the generosity of arts advocates like YOU.
Thank you for supporting the arts, artists, and arts organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic! Because of past gifts from people like you, DAC was able to remain vigilant in our mission to create a vibrant community through the arts even when our only means to do so was virtually.
As we continue to recover from the devastating and on-going impact of the pandemic, please consider giving to Durham Arts Council. Undoubtedly, the road back will be long and not without setbacks, but today my heart is light with hope for the future of the arts in Durham.
Will you help us re-stART the arts?
Your amazing support helped DAC have major IMPACT in the FY21 pandemic year!
You helped Durham Arts Council:
With renewed optimism for a vibrant future,
Sherry L. DeVries
Durham Arts Council
I’d love to hear from you!
