Panel Discussion: Collecting, Philanthropy and Ethics - 7:00 PM

6 PM Gallery tour with introduction by Blake Byrne

6:30 PM Meet the Collectors: reception with cash bar

7 PM Panel discussion

 

The Nasher Museum exists because of an ethical collector and his generous philanthropy. The late Raymond D. Nasher, the museum’s founder and namesake, was one of the first real estate developers in the United States to place sculpture and other art in commercial retail complexes. A panel of art world luminaries will discuss how social responsibility relates to collecting art: L.A. collector and Duke graduate Blake Byrne (class of ’57), whose collection is on view in the exhibition Open This End, with NY-based collector Mike Levine (class of ’84), Peter Boris, executive vice president of Pace Gallery, NY, and Brian Boucher, senior writer for Artnet News. Co-sponsored by the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Sanford School of Public Policy and the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke. Reception with cash bar.
