21c Museum Hotels has rehabilitated the historic Hill Building in Downtown Durham as a 125-room boutique hotel. In addition to its spacious rooms, complete with contemporary design, the hotel features a restaurant and lounge called Counting House and a museum showing curated, rotating exhibits of "museum quality" contemporary art. The museum is open free to the public 24 hours a day.
The 21c is woven into the fabric of downtown, welcoming both visitors and members of the community to experience its rotating exhibitions, participate in its programs, and enjoy its culinary offerings.
Enjoy a cocktail reception at 6pm, followed by opening remarks from Chief Curator Alice Gray Stites, and a special presentation by featured artist Anthony Goicolea.
