ABOUT DAC: Mission & Vision
The Durango Arts Center (DAC) provides Durango and surrounding communities opportunities to create, to promote, and to participate in diverse arts experiences. The DAC brings people together to explore and engage in arts and culture by fostering creative expression through in-house exhibitions, performances, and educational programs for all ages and abilities.
The DAC strives to support a creative dialogue among community members, ensuring that culture informs local decision-making and enriches our lives.
WHAT DAC OFFERS
Located in downtown Durango, CO, the DAC has become the hub for cultural innovation in southwest Colorado. The building housing DAC, at the corner of E. 2nd Ave. and 8th St., was once home to a car dealership. In 1997, the community collaborated to fund and renovate the 17,000-square-foot building, now home to a gallery, theater, arts library, studio space and more. Come play and explore!
