DAG Launches Art@Work Program

Building mutually beneficial connections between local artists and local businesses!

HOW WE GOT TO ART@WORK 
 
The Durham Art Guild has built new unique partnerships over the last 3 years to create new opportunities for artists to showcase their work within the community. Through these rotating exhibition opportunities at the offices of the Triangle Community Foundation and the lobby of Castalia at Meadowmont, and the more recent purchase project with Lofts at Lakeview, we have learned so much about working with local businesses and we have learned a lot from the participating artists regarding their experiences and needs as well. Through these art partnerships we have since:
 
  • Showcased 21 artists in new venues.
  • Sold 27 works of art to new patrons.
  • Put $18,500 into the pockets of local artists.
 
In a nutshell, we want to get more artists paid, we want to educate more businesses on the variety of talent available in the area, and we want to emphasize the importance of valuing and supporting local artists.
