Don't be fooled

Who knew?

And, at the Scrap Exchange:
Outer Galactic Costume Creation

Workshop to be held Saturday, August 8 from 3 to 4:30 in our Make-N-Take room, in celebration of the Durham Art Guild show featuring a touring exhibit of Sun Ra ephemera, Pathways to Unknown Worlds: Sun Ra, El Saturn and Chicago's Afro-Futurist Underground, 1954-68.

Jim Kellough is helping plan a free-form, pre-exhibit Spectacle which will include a sidewalk procession from Durham Central Park to the Durham Art Council building on Saturday, August 8 beginning at 4:30pm.

This procession will feature Sun Ra-inspired costumes and music and will meander throughout downtown, ending at the Durham Arts Council where there will be a combination of film and music within the empty DAG gallery space.

For more information, contact Jennifer Collins-Mancour, Director, Durham Art Guild at 919-560-2713 or by email at

  • WTF is up with that sign? All I can find on Google is a link to a message on a Raleigh Craigslist musician forum that got flagged...

  • It's left over from the Mayoral campaign two years ago, when it initially referred to Thomas Stith.

    I have no idea why it was used in a Sun Ra guerrilla marketing campaign, but i love it.

  • I posted a photo of this sign on Facebook yesterday after I saw it. Anything that brings more attention to the upcoming Sun Ra festivities in town is OK by me!

    Proud that I'll soon be a neighbor to the (in)famous traffic circle!
