Everyone is welcome at the Nasher Museum.
Even if you are 1 foot tall, blue and two-dimensional. And mute.

The Flat Blue Devil made an appearance recently in our permanent collection gallery.
He was dwarfed by the nostril hairs of Ron Mueck’s sculpture, “Mask (Self-Portrait).”

Flat Blue Devil has also been seen shopping and lurking around campus.
Read more about his misadventures on Duke Today.
