Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University

My father would often remark that art is like air and water – it is needed to survive and to enjoy life to its fullest. David and I are proud to support my father's vision for Duke to have one of the best university art museums in the world. It has become our vision.

Nasher Diversity Internship Program
FOR STUDENTS

Nasher Diversity Internship Program

Intended to increase the diversity of those working in our institutions to better reflect the diverse communities being served, the pilot program was first launched by the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) with additional funding support from the National Endowment for the Arts. From this beginning step, Duke graduate David Arthur (A.B.’88, P’21) has made a transformative gift that allows this exciting paid internship to continue at the Nasher for a second consecutive summer. Find out more about this program.
