The Nasher Museum presents Area 919: Artists in the Triangle a survey of noteworthy work by artists who live in the Triangle. Some of the artists show their work internationally in contemporary galleries and museums; others are newer to the art world. All of them contribute to a vibrant and innovative local artist community.
These “artists next door” have both found inspiration at the museum and helped the Nasher forge and grow its presence in Durham’s creative community. Many have taken part in the Nasher Museum’s first decade—through exhibitions, artist talks and events. Now the Nasher Museum brings the work of these exciting artists together to share with Duke and the broader public. Area 919 features work by Jeff Bell, Casey Cook, André Leon Gray, Lincoln Hancock with Yuxtapongo, Harrison Haynes, George Jenne, Stacey L. Kirby, Lavar Munroe, Damian Stamer, Bill Thelen, Hong-An Truong, Stacy Lynn Waddell, and Jeff Whetstone.
Free and open to the public. Cash bar.
