Update #3- Coronavirus and the Dare County Arts Council



We hope you are all doing well, and staying safe at home. Dare County Arts Council is closely following all local, state and national guidance on how to minimize the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our artists, volunteers, staff and art supporters. Dare County Arts Council will remain closed until further notice. We will make a public announcement about reopening as soon as possible.


Below is a list of our most recent postponements and cancellations...
