Since 2015, 21c Durham has been engaging visitors and locals alike with the art of today. Explore the current exhibition, dine among thought-provoking works at Counting House, or lounge in the original bank vault – transformed by contemporary art.
The historic Hill Building has been re-imagined to showcase more than 10,500 square feet of exhibition space where curated exhibitions and site-specific installations reflect the global nature of contemporary culture. Our galleries are open every day and exhibitions rotate, so make plans to visit often, and be sure to take advantage of regular cultural programming, too.
If you can’t visit us in person, check-in with Elevate artists, Clarence Heyward and Shelby Scattergood, as they share their experiences working as artists at this moment in history, their advice to fellow artists, and how they create and sustain their community.
