SIGN UP TO VIEW NEW EXHIBITS AT THE DAC!
Make an appointment to view new exhibits from the Durham Arts Council! In the DAC's Allenton Gallery, see I REMEMBER by Elizabeth Stone. "I REMEMBER" features work developed by the Montana-based artist during her October artist residency at Cassilhaus (Chapel Hill). Artworks on view from Stone's I REMEMBER project incorporate thousands of photographic negatives and slides that were collected from generous community members in the region.
In our upstairs Semans Gallery, we're excited to host a curated collection from the North Carolina Central University Department of Art and Design! NCCU Department of Art Student Works is a survey of pieces from the emerging designers, studio artists, and students concentrating in NCCU's newly formed Animation and Interactive Media classes.
These exhibitions will be viewable by limited appointments following safety protocols. Visit the sign-up page for details.
