Sponsorship Opportunities

The Durham Art Guild has supported local arts and artist for 60 years making us one of the longest running arts organizations in the United States.  Each year we greet over 14,000 supporters and consumers at our Gallery located within the Durham Arts Council Building, and receive over 2,000 visits to our website monthly.   All our exhibits and opening receptions are free and open to the public, and are often reviewed in such publications as Metro Magazine, Durham Magazine, The Independently Weekly and others.  Our receptions continue to be a highlight for downtown Durham’s Third Friday events, and we draw a diverse audience from various backgrounds.  For decades we have continued to serve our community by making quality visual arts programs and services accessible, but we need your help.  Due to decreases in City funding, it is necessary to locate new ways to insure our programs for the future for our community.  Please consider making a tax-deductible sponsorship contribution today!

Categories of opportunity are listed below.  Please contact us at board@durhamartguild.org for more information, or to create a custom sponsorship that fits your budget and goals.
