Art space and creative playground now open in downtown Durham!
Nearly a century ago, this warehouse complex housed giant coolers for fruits and veggies arriving by train. Today we have 22,000sf dedicated to making and experiencing visual and performing arts that include film, dance, painting, photography, and drama. We love hosting alternative and emerging artists among world class artists.
At present, the Georges Rousse "Blue Room" and "Dream Room" are our sole art installations.
Hours: We are open during performance times and announced gallery openings, and by appointment.
Location/Parking: tons of free parking across the street at the County Health Department on evenings and weekends (thanks Commissioners!) Find us at the intersection of Dillard and Ramseur, near Durham Cider Works and before Ponysaurus, about four blocks east of DPAC and American Tobacco.
Please contact Tim Walter for information about daily studio rentals for film or photography, receptions, dances, or booking an exhibit or performance.
Money spent here recirculates to benefit the art scene in the region. Thanks!

SUNDAY SITES - Four Musicians, Four Dancers, Photography and Video Projections
Come celebrate an artistic interpretation of Durham's "revitalization." Culmination of over a year of site-specific art events. Dancers have tied themselves to scaffolding, danced in empty pools, swung from balconies in empty fish restaurants. This evening brings it all into one place. Just your routine East Village performance right here in Durm, y'all. From 8PM-on, after Third Friday. Could go late. Dancing might happen. The FB Link.
When a part of your body -- your very flesh -- is host to fear, what is the response? Alkhawf is Arabic for fear; this is first of a trilogy about facing fear. This is a multidisciplinary experience of modern dance, live video projection, and photography. Feb 23-25, 8PM. Details and tickets OM Grown Dancers.
Grindhouse by Boom or Bust Burlesque. March 16th. One Night Only. Ticketing info coming soon.
