Celebrating the Arts in Durham

About the exhibit

Celebrating the Arts in Durham is the inaugural project of the Museum of Durham History, Inc. The panels you see in this online exhibit have real-life fabric equivalents—2 ½ x 6’ fabric banners housed in decorative, hand-wrought metal frames (PDF). They will be on display at various sites around Durham, NC, moving every few months.

To see images of individual banners, click on the title of the banner in the online exhibit.
