Shake off the winter blues as we Swing into Spring and welcome a new season of the arts in Durham. 

Join the Durham Art Guild for a night filled with creative expression and celebration. Dance to the swinging sounds of Mint Julep Jazz Band and place your bids on unique items that celebrate local artists and the best of the Bull City.

Come show your support for Durham's continuously blooming and vibrant arts scene. Your best floral prints or colorful attire are encouraged. Wear a flower crown or bring a bouquet, corsage or boutonniere if you desire! Stay tuned for more details and announcements as we inch closer and closer to spring.

We are pulling out all the stops for our VIPs.

Starting at 7:30pm, celebrate the arts in Durham with live swing music and swing dancing. Don't worry, we will have instructors on hand for a quick lesson if you need a refresher.

Bid on art created by local artists in our silent auction as well as many other great items donated by some of your favorite area hot spots.
