We are thrilled to once again be partnering with the 21c Museum Hotel, which will be the host of the reviews. Located in the heart of downtown Durham and occupying the historic Hill Building, 21c Museum Hotel Durham is a 125-room boutique hotel, contemporary art museum, cultural civic center, and home to Counting House restaurant. 21c Museum Hotel will be offering special packages for those wishing to stay at the center of the action.

21c Museum Hotel was conceived as a space where contemporary art – sometimes whimsical, sometimes inspiring, often challenging – can be transformative; a venue for exploring what is relevant today through different lenses.
