Current Exhibition: LIM|NAL The Space Between
Capturing the Creative Culture of Current Cabarrus County
Thursday, May 18, 2023 - Saturday, July 22, 2023
Downtown Concord is about to jump into the 21st Century with three modern, five-over-one, economy-boosting apartments; a courthouse the size of a city block, and a complete makeover to the store fronts of Downtown proper: Union Street. All of these projects will create a new atmosphere in the historic city mingling modern architecture with centuries-old buildings. America’s first gold rush and vital textile industry brought droves of people to Cabarrus County in the 19th & 20th centuries. And now the next boom is approaching as the country-wide mass migration to North Carolina will flood its cities with new influence and overflow into their smaller cultures – including Historic Concord.
So as the construction of the apartments, courthouses and streetscapes overflow into Downtown’s way-of-life, we tune out the beeping of dump trucks and take in the space between the Old and the New Concord.
Before we welcome the wave of new citizens and businesses that will influence our small town culture, we will showcase the creatives who live and influence Concord’s unique “vibe” in there here and now.

LIM|NAL: Stage Production
For the first time in Cabarrus Arts Council history, The Davis Theatre will host a performance that coincides with the works in The Galleries.
Creative expression takes many forms. To explore this, LIM|NAL will not only celebrate our local 2D & 3D creatives but also those on the performance front. You’ll be introduced to our local musicians, spoken word and rap artists, interpretive dancers, and more!
TuxedoKat is seeking any performance-based expression to fill the stage of The Davis Theatre. Please inquire with any questions.
