Asheboro, NC - The Randolph Arts Guild is set to host local sculptor Mike Durham in front of the Randolph Arts Guild Shop Friday, June 20th from 5pm to 7pm as a part of the Out and About events in Downtown Asheboro, NC.  Out and About is a casual voluntary marketing effort by the Downtown Business Association to give people a reason to enjoy the sights, sounds, and cultural richness of Downtown Asheboro every Third Friday during the summer months.
