April stroll through Durham offers a world of art

April 2, 2013 by  

For those who enjoy any combination of art, food, and music, downtown Durham is the place to be this month.

With in excess of 200 artists displaying their works and the Durham Art Walk (DAW), there will be plenty to see. The Durham Arts Council, responsible for the DAW, provides 33 venues to view the art, which encompasses a variety of mediums.

With thousands of visitors here to enjoy not only the art but free musical entertainment as well, downtown restaurants have opportunities to increase their name recognition and build their clientele. The more savvy entrepreneurs both in the food service and other enterprises will take advantage of flyer printing to offer specials to patrons for a return visit.

The newly revitalized downtown area has much to offer visitor every weekend. Ideally, those who come for the DAW will see the city as a prime location for shopping and dining.

An added feature to the DAW will be what is termed a ‘Scan’venger Hunt. QR codes at each Art Walk site may be scanned as a means of earning Bull City Buck$ for redemption at local businesses. Bull City Buck$ is a mobile app program which has collaborated with the DAW in the past.

The DAW is free to the public and takes place rain or shine on April 13 and 14. It will run from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on the Saturday and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm Sunday.
