Partners and Collaborators- Help Us Celebrate Ten Years

The Museum of Durham History is inviting you to help celebrate its first 10 years in Bull City and to toast to the future of Durham. Join us on Wednesday, October 25 from 5:30PM – 8:30PM EDT at the Rickhouse (609 Foster St, Durham, NC 27701). This is a chance for our exhibit collaborators, community supporters, board and staff (past & present), and programming partners to come together and celebrate what has been accomplished over the last decade, and learn what’s next for the MoDH!

Enjoy small bites courtesy of Southern Harvest, chocolate from Paige Patisserie, and beverages provided by Ponysaurus, Fullsteam, and Melanated Wine.

Look back at exhibits re-imagined by Absolute AV and Catherine Pipkin Design in a multimedia retrospective, to the soundtrack of a live jazz combo from NCCU. You will also have the opportunity to silently bid on a Kreativityyy work of art, which will be painted during the event.

Guest speakers include:
