Free Thurdays at the Nasher Museum of Art

Nasher Museum of Art
Duke University
2001 Campus Drive
Durham, NC

Open Tuesday - Sunday

Free on Thursdays
5pm to 9pm

This time of year, the days are long, the nights are hot and everyone could use a little more time off.

So kick off your extended weekend stay at the Arrowhead Inn in Durham, North Carolina with a free, Thursday night trip to The Nasher Museum of Art.

The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University fosters the understanding and appreciation of the arts by directly introducing the campus and the greater Durham community to unique and rich works of visual art.  The museum contains over 13,000 works including large collections of renaissance, African, classical Greek and Roman, and ancient American art.  Contemporary exhibits rotate through two temporary galleries almost monthly.

While any day is a good day to visit The Nasher, try catching a glimpse of the Durham art community on a Thursday night this summer.  Admission to the permanent and visiting exhibitions is free and you may be lucky enough to catch a live musical performance on the patio or take part in a curator conversation.  Films are also shown on select evenings and special dining opportunities are offered during the month of August.

For a complete list of upcoming events, check the complete Free Thursdays Schedule.

Finish off your summer vacation with a little art and education!  We hope to see you there!

Beat the Heat with Locopops

2600 Hillsborough Road
 Durham, NC 
Open Daily from 12-9

Everyone knows summer in North Carolina can get a little....toasty.  If you are looking for a way to escape the sweltering, afternoon heat, we've got the perfect remedy: head on down to one of our favorite, locally grown businesses, Locopops, for a delightfully suprising, gourmet popsicle.

What is so great about a popsicle you ask? With flavors like Mango Chile, Mexican Chocolate, Mojito and Pomegranate Tangerine, the real question to ask is: Why didn't I know about this sooner??

Locopops was started in Durham, North Carolina in 2005 with the goal of bringing Mexican inspired, gourmet popsicles to the Triangle.  Though the favorite flavors regularly grace the menu, guest stars rotate almost daily.  Pop in for a treat and you may find flavors like Grapefruit Mint, Tangerine Passionfruit, Lemon Thyme or Chocolate Bacon! Five years after Locopops first opened its doors, business is still booming, now in four different locations in the triangle. 

We hope you have the chance to taste a few flavors of the world, right in our own neighborhood.
