RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
Nasher Museum and Duke Arts staff are preparing to install an unprecedented outdoor exhibition and public awareness campaign by nationally renowned artist Carrie Mae Weems. RESIST COVID / TAKE SIX! emphasizes the disproportionate impact of the deadly virus on the lives of communities of color. This powerful art initiative will take shape on the exterior walls and windows of the Nasher Museum and Rubenstein Arts Center this month. In October, the installation will expand along the length of the Arts Corridor, from the Sarah P. Duke Gardens gate to Campus Drive street pole banners to the Carpentry Shop (home of the MFA EDA program). Learn more: RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
