Panelists include Jade Bettin, instructor, UNC Dramatic Arts; Molly Boarati, assistant curator, Nasher Museum; Barbara Dickinson, professor of the practice, Duke Dance Program; and Scott Lindroth, Vice Provost for the Arts and professor of music. Inspired by Miró: The Experience of Seeing, and the original ballet L’Uccello Luce, the program will conclude with a brief dance performance by Audrey Fenske, who graduated from Duke in 2009, and Devin Sweet, N.C. School of the Arts graduate and freelance dancer, with original choreography, set and costume design. Free and open to the public. Supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.

Totes totes     Ornaments
BLOG / Over the holidays, one of our stylish Nasher Museum totes traveled to New Zealand. Bright like jelly-beans, versatile, cheerful. The Nasher tote packed up small. And it was so handy—from the beach to the store to the pool to a night on the town. A big thank-you to Frank Konhaus and Ellen Cassilly for this report! More.
