Music, pizza and free local brew are on tap at the History Hub’s first Open House from 6-10pm on Friday, July 20. The Durham Museum is located at #500 W. Main Street. The doors will be flung open to the public for the first time. So if you are out and about or heading downtown for Durham Art Walk's Third Friday you have a chance to wander through new, life-size exhibit renderings.
The folk duo, Quiet the Voices, will perform under the gazebo in Central Park, and friends of the Clarion Content, the Pie Pushers will be selling pizza. Word is the Museum will offer visitors light munchies and a free beer.
Ceiling-hung renderings of proposed exhibits and installations will be on display to prompt feedback and ideas. “We’re in a building stage right now,” said Hub co-director Katie Spencer, “and we’re gathering friends, feedback and funds to get our doors ready to open early next year. We couldn’t think of a better way to get started than to throw a party.”
