Excellent venue with galleries on both floors. Also provides classes on site with several performance spaces. Easy to get to but parking is tight.

3rd Friday is great but you can check it out anytime. There are always interesting art exhibit on display. And the classes are also great and reasonable. I've taken belly dance, salsa aerobics, intro to drawing and guitar.

We had my daughter's dance recital here the last two years and it is a very well kept facility.

A lovely place to watch our little one’s ballet showcase. Comfy chairs with all of the seats being good ones.

Great space for artsy folks. Market days are held here, and it's a good opportunity to get creative decor for your place.

This is THE place for arts classes in Durham for all ages. I took the mosaics class and could easily have spent the entire day there. I would like to see open studio options for people who have taken a class in that particular area so we can use the facility and tools. Raleigh parks and recreation offers that at Pullen park arts center

So I was there for a wedding, which was held in the theater, It's a small venue, however, very fitting for the occasion. We were told that it was once an old school.

Had a wedding reception here for my daughter. Perfect venue. A tall glass stairway where the Father of the Bride could give his speech from, and the best man and maid of honor. Lots of room to set up tables for seating, really reasonable pricing, and an art gallery for guests to roam around in
