Nasher New York

The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University invites Duke alumni and parents to join us for an exclusive series of events in one of the premier cities of the art world- New York.  Nasher New York is a chance to go behind the scenes for unique experiences, while connecting with like-minded friends who love art and love Duke.  Programs include invitations to artist studios, galleries, auction houses, and more.  We’ll open the doors to private collections and intimate conversations with curators, artists, and collectors.  Enjoy unparalleled access to extraordinary locations and remarkable activities, like a tour of Eric Fischl’s studio or a visit to Arne Glimcher’s private residence.  For Duke alumni and parents, Nasher New York is an opportunity not to be missed.

For more information about Nasher New York or opportunities to support the Nasher Museum, please contact Nasher Development at marycatherine.hall@duke.edu or 919-684-3411.
