Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University
Dare I say it's funky!Mark Anthony Neal, James B. Duke Professor of African and African American Studies at Duke University, during his gallery talk that began with the painting Hot Rhythm by Archibald Motley.
A $1.5 million new Sculpture Garden is the first expansion of the Nasher Museum since it was built in 2005. Admission is free and open to all. The lush green space opened on September 28, 2019, when more than 1,200 visitors came to experience live performances of Composition 21 by Brooklyn-based, Israeli-born artist Naama Tsabar.
