9 pm – Midnight
@LabourLove GalleryThe Art of Cool Project and LabourLove Gallery are excited to present The Beast with special guest Jocelyn Ellis and King Mez on March 16th from 9 pm – Midnight for the continuation of our After Hours concert series. Last month’s show was sold out. We know that this show will be a sell out, so get your tickets today! Bring a friend. Enjoy the music and art, and go home with your heart full of local arts flavor.The Beast is a fearless hip hop and jazz quartet from Durham, NC. Compelling lyrics, progressive compositions and a gripping live show make The Beast one of the most refreshing and versatile bands to emerge from North Carolina’s burgeoning music scene. Emcee and professor Pierce Freelon joined forces with pianist Eric Hirsh, drummer Stephen Coffman and bassist Peter Kimosh after they graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2007. Hundreds of shows and thousands of downloads later, they set the standard for live hip hop and genre-bending jazz in North Carolina.

Welcome New Artists
LabourLove is continuing to grow and we have added more artists to the collective. But we have room for more! We don’t take the saying”build it and they will come” lightly, we are planning on building out more walls so that we can grow the collective. If you are interested or if you know someone who is, you can find all the information here: Join the Collective.
Meanwhile, come check out the new work and our new artists this Third Friday, March 16th from 6pm-9pm! Here is a sneak peek from Arthur Porter Lake, James Nelson, Adia Ledbetter & Alley Bird Number Seven :
Spot the Dot
We have fine tuned the meet and greet concept to “Spot the Dot.” If you see an artist’s work that intrigues you, and you would like to ask them questions about their process or get an idea of what they were thinking, simply look for a colored shape on the wall and then find the matching shape on the artist!

The Durham Storefront Project
The Durham Storefront Project is currently accepting proposals from artists, collectives, and other creatives interested in producing site-specific installations in downtown Durham storefronts – either an empty space or business. Proposals for this series of installations should explore points of connection to the space itself, the downtown environment or our community – physical, personal, abstract, or geographic. The installations will be accompanied by a series of performances that happen in and around the selected storefronts, creating artistic hubs.
The Durham Storefront Project organizes installation series in underutilized spaces, highlighting the history and architecture of Durham, providing new opportunities for artists, and adding vibrancy to downtown.
Dates: Installations will go up in early April and remain up until mid-May. Specific timelines are subject to negotiation between artist and owner. The installations will run concurrently with the Durham Art Council’s Spring Art Walk.
Proposals: Please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 17th
Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis by a committee of local artists and arts professionals/enthusiasts. Early submission is encouraged! Installations will be selected based on quality of previous work, availability of the space, and, compatibility with the vision of the Durham Storefront Project.
