Creative Ways to do Chocolate in Durham

While giving a box of chocolates is a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, we thought it was worth thinking outside the box. There are so many more options for treating your sweetheart than the same old boring heart-shaped box of chocolate.

Fear not, Durham’s food scene has got you covered – after all, it is The Tastiest Town in the South. Here is a slide show of great, and sometimes unique, chocolate options from Cocoa Cinnamon, Rose’s Meats Market and Sweet Shop, Sam’s Quik Shop, Scratch, The Chocolate Shop, and The Parlour.

The slideshow features items available now and through Valentine’s Day.

"Sound Vision: Contemporary Art from the Collection" Art Exhibit

Since the turn of the 20th century, artists have appropriated imagery from well-known works of art, commodities and the media in order to make a statement about art’s relationship to, and place within, our world. The artists included in this installation use appropriation in their own way and for their own purposes, addressing themes of identity, politics, economics, history and nostalgia. Central to all of these works are questions of originality and the processes that go into making art. This installation includes works from the Nasher Museum’s collection by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Alice Wagner, Vik Muniz, Alexander Kosolapov and others. Admission $5, $4 seniors, $3 non-Duke students with student ID.
