About The Courtyard 

The Courtyard Project’s Groundbreaking Ceremony was hosted on Tuesday, March 3, 2020. 

The project transformed the yard behind the 1904 Courthouse building into a multi-functional courtyard that enabled Dare Arts to expand its programming, serve additional segments of the community and showcase a broader range of creative endeavors including outdoor artwork, workshops and artist demonstrations.

To learn how to participate in the Courtyard, please email Jessica Sands at

The Courtyard was designed by Ben Cahoon of Cahoon + Kasten Architects.
