Dare County Arts Council To Reopen On November First Friday


After three weeks of being closed due to flooding from Hurricane Michael, Dare County Arts Council will reopen at 10am on First Friday, November 2.

Dare County Arts Council’s carpets had to be replaced due to the flooding, but the nonprofit has been working closely with Dare County to get the doors back open as soon as possible.

“A huge thank you to all of our volunteers and the Dare County Building and Grounds Crew for all of their hard work,” said Dare County Arts Council Executive Director Chris Sawin.

To celebrate First Friday in downtown Manteo, Dare County Arts Council will host the opening reception for their People’s Choice Exhibit, which will feature Daniel Pullen’s photography.

The Outer Banks community voted for the People’s Choice Exhibit earlier in the year, and out of over 200 nominations Pullen was nominated the most.
