the archive

The Mural Durham Archive was created in October 2016 in response to the growing number of murals popping up in and around downtown Durham. The texts and images contained in the pages of this website serve as record of each mural and those who helped to create them. While we have uploaded just a slice of what's currently out there in our community, we plan on adding new entries throughout the year. Please check back periodically or visit our Facebook page for the latest updates. 

Want to play an important role in making this a true "living" archive? Great! Send us your stories, memories, or additional information about a mural(s) by emailing Reneé Cagnina Haynes, at renee.cagnina@duke.edu.
