SEEK Raleigh- Dorothea Dix Park- June 1

We will take part in SEEK Raleigh on Saturday, June 1, 3-8pm at Dorothea Dix Park. Our location will be a container on Blair Drive within the park.

SEEK Raleigh is a temporary public art program that engages artists to use unique, non-traditional interiors, structures, and outdoor spaces for site-specific, performative, and participatory installations and experiences. These temporary, experimental projects are designed to introduce the public to new, diverse, and thought-provoking experiences as well as create opportunities for artists to extend their creative practice. Through these experiences, both the artist and the community will find novel ways to learn and share the stories of our City.
