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: FREE parking in the Human services lot 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.
Money spent here recirculates to benefit the art scene in the region. Thanks!

What's Coming Up - Check Here Often
As the finale of DIDA's 2018 season, The Bipeds present '54 Strange Words', a psychedelic movement and live music experience that treads along the mysterious threshold between dreams and reality, while blurring the line between dance and song. Choreographer Stacy Wolfson and musical director Curtis Eller draw the show's imagery from a series of nightmares and the failure of language to adequately express these unsettling visions. Movement and live music (featuring The Bipeds' scorching rock n' roll band) emerge as the only effective methods of illuminating the disturbing world in which the performers find themselves.
