In celebration of its first decade, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University will commission a mural by abstract painter Odili Donald Odita on a wall of the Downtown Durham YMCA, 218 W. Morgan St. The mural will be unveiled on Oct. 10 at a block party in downtown Durham.
The Downtown Durham YMCA located at 218 W. Morgan Street is a vital part of the Durham community serving thousands of adults, families and children through programs that promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Durham YMCA members have access to four branches – the Downtown Durham YMCA, the Lakewood YMCA, Hope Valley Farms YMCA and the YMCA at American Tobacco. The Durham YMCAs are branches of the YMCA of the Triangle.
