Durham is an awesome city full of awesome artists. Every year the Durham Arts Council hosts a fun event called the Durham Art Walk that, like Black Friday, kicks off the holday buying season for art lovers. I'll be out and about Saturday evening checking it all out. See you around town!
Durham Art Walk celebrates the creative energy of our local artists, arts organizations and downtown entrepreneurs by combining downtown spaces and businesses with local artists and performers in a unique showcase weekend. Unlike conventional studio tours, the Durham Art Walk places visual and performing artists in both traditional and unexpected sites throughout downtown Durham. Sites are within easy walking distance through newly renovated streetscapes and plazas.
Started by a group of downtown artists and businesses with support from the Durham Art Guild, the Durham Art Walk remains an un-juried event powered by a zest for transformation, experiment and surprise. From the visionary legacy of historic Parrish Street, to the courage of our newest businesses and youngest artists, Durham is built on innovation. Take a little walk, take a leap of faith and find out what Durham is all about.
