As the hub for quality arts experiences, the Durango Arts Center is enriched in its mission through the dedication of individuals and businesses that advance the arts, creativity and culture. Every year we celebrate “SweetheARTS” who make noteworthy contributions benefiting DAC, as well as the cultural landscape of the entire community. As part of the event, DAC is pleased to present an exhibit of work by the honorees in the Barbara Conrad Gallery, which also serves as the cocktail and appetizer setting at the event.
This annual gala is a signature fundraising event benefiting the Durango Arts Center’s visual and performing arts experiences that serve thousands of children, youth and adults each year. The creative engagement of community members, such as our 2017 Sweethearts, truly elevates DAC’s impact. To learn more about the event, please visit the Sweethearts page.
