Truth to Power @ Pleiades Gallery
Jul 15 all-day

Pleiades Gallery in Durham presents “Truth to Power,” our fifth annual juried exhibit focusing on matters of social justice. Juried by Pedro Lasch of Duke University, the issue of power is seen through an intentionally broad set of angles, media, and political viewpoints. The artists in this show come from a diverse set of backgrounds with very different characters and sensibilities. All have found powerful ways to use their artistic voices. The exhibit runs from Thursday, July 13 – Sunday, August 6. Join us for the reception, artist talk and open mic event on Friday, July 21, from 6-9pm.

Question-a-bull Trivia at Durty Bull @ Durty Bull Brewing Company
Jul 18 @ 7:00 pm

Welcome to the first day of class. Here at Durty Bulliversity we know that many of you would prefer to choose your own classes. However, you’ve all been drinking, so we’ve set up the curriculum for you. We’ll be running over material from current events, this week in history, and music, plus a final mystery round to make sure you’re still awake.

Your instructor, Ms Sherri, is stone-cold sober and ready to see how much you know about things and stuff. We’ve got some prizes for the top students, so bring your thinking caps and competitive spirit.

The smart student shows up early to get some last minute studying in, and our taproom happens to open at 4pm. Just saying.
