A Dozen Musical Chairs to Support Arts Organizations

In early March, close to 125 artists, musicians and community members came together for Musical Chairs 2017, a joint fundraiser at the Durham Arts Council to support The Scrap Exchange and Durham Medical Orchestra. Twelve artists adorned old chairs in a style inspired by the orchestra, which were presented to a panel of judges who awarded prizes to the best in show at the gala. Then the decorated chairs were auctioned off to guests, with proceeds from the event – about $7,000 – going to benefit both organizations.
