Durham Begins Performing Arts Center
The City of Durham, NC has begun its own venture into the performing arts center community while also further revitalizing its downtown. Following the lead of nearby Raleigh, the DPAC (Durham Performing Arts Center) should provide an additional venue for the arts in the Triangle above and beyond the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts (formerly the BTI Center). DPAC is slated to be a 110,000 square foot, 2,800 seat facility designed by Szostak Design, Inc. Currently the project is scheduled to open in 2008 and will be located in proximity to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
