Blog / Build Your Own Mobile Contest

Posted


By Stephanie

With the opening of the new Alexander Calder exhibition at the Nasher Museum this week, form, balance and  joy seem to be on everyone’s minds at Duke right now. Even Lilly Library is jumping on board with its own mobile building contest. Come out to the Nasher Museum to see the exhibition and get some inspiration from the inventor of the mobile himself, then take a shot at designing and building your own.

Students, staff and alumni are encouraged to participate in the contest. Prizes will be awarded to the most creative, most Duke, and most humorous mobiles.  For more details go here.

For more information on the exhibit visit our website.
