Triangle Community Artists Gallery
As part of our focus on cultural arts, the Foundation’s office space also serves as a rotating art gallery, for two main reasons: to support and foster local artists, and to encourage our community to connect and engage in a meaningful conversation inspired by art.
Current Artist: Dare Kumolu-Johnson
The Durham Art Guild and Triangle Community Foundation present work from Dare Kumolu-Johnson. "In my work, I love to tell stories that speak to people especially stories of black people. When I am capturing images, my guiding words to myself are, “Forget your photos; tell me a story.”"
The Impact of COVID-19 and Racial Inequity on the Triangle Arts Community
In our fifth episode of What Matters: The Video Podcast series, our guests highlight what is it like to be an artist during this time, what do the arts do for our community, how funding can play into racial inequity, and from the donor perspective why is it so important to support the arts right now.
