In-Kind Needs

DAC’s vibrant programming schedule requires the on-going acquisition of items that assist in producing quality visual and performing arts programs.  If you would like to donate any of the following items, or make a contribution to underwrite their purchase, your generosity will be greatly appreciated.  All wish list donations are tax deductible in keeping with current IRS regulations.

The Durango Arts Center 2017 wish list includes:


DAC’s kitchen refrigerator is in need of replacement.  Used for theater beverage concessions, gallery events and DAC special events, DAC can accommodate a refrigerator that is 36 inches wide, 67.5 inches tall, and 34 inches deep.  Remodeling your kitchen? DAC would happily accept a second-hand refrigerator in good working order or a donation for the purchase of a refrigerator, email or call (970) 259-2606, ext 19.


DAC’s Applause! performing arts education students share their dynamic talent on both the DAC stage and off campus at a variety of community events.  An iPad Pro is the ideal tool to provide necessary track music for off campus performances.  If you have an iPad Pro you are not using or you would consider making a donation for the purchase of an iPad Pro to expand the impact of DAC Applause off-site performances, email or call (970) 259-2606, ext 19. 


Throughout the year DAC brings artists, exhibit jurors, playwrights, performers and guest lecturers to the community to share their particular expertise.  Serving as a Guest Artist Home Host for one or two nights is a unique opportunity to meet creative individuals.  If you or someone you know has a guest room or cottage to share, email  Sharing your home is a great gift to DAC and promises to be an enjoyable shared experience.
