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 County Human Services lot on evenings and weekends. 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!

“I wanted to write about the American family - what it looks like now, and how families are made in unexpected ways,” says playwright Rachel Bonds. The family members she brings us in Curve of Departure are young and old, Jewish and Christian, gay and straight, black and white and brown. This "strange ragtag little group of humans" navigate joy and sadness together over the course of one night.
"A tight-knit family drama so comfortable in its skin... a little gem of a play.” - Washington City Paper
