Blog / The Duke Idea: London

Posted

For those of us who could not make it to London last weekend for Duke University President Richard H. Brodhead’s “The Duke Idea,” we have a lovely report from Michael J. Schoenfeld, vice president, public affairs and government relations at Duke:

Artists Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Anthony Van Dyck and Joseph Wright of Derby were not in the audience last night, but it was under the watchful gaze of some of their most important works that 150 alumni, parents, students and friends gathered at the Tate Britain Museum in London for the latest edition of The Duke Idea.  The high-ceilinged gallery at Tate Britain provided a unique and elegant setting for a campus update from President Brodhead, followed by a discussion with Kim Rorschach, director of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, about the evolution of the role of the art museum at Duke.
