Please join the Nasher Museum to celebrate the grand opening of the Rubenstein Arts Center (the Ruby), a catalyst for creativity and a new home for making art at Duke. Start your day at the Nasher Museum Café for brunch, visit the free Ruby hot chocolate bar at the museum’s Anderson Street entrance, and head across the street to 2020 Campus Drive for this special celebration! Designed with the arts in mind, the Ruby encompasses 10 multipurpose studios, the Duke programs in Dance and Arts of the Moving Image, a makerspace, the 200-seat von der Heyden Studio Theater, a film theater, student-run radio station WXDU-FM, and the Ruby Lounge. Stop in for performances by local Durham bands, student art and dance groups and algorithm-driven instruments by composer Scott Lindroth, Duke’s Vice Provost for the Arts; see a pop-up installation by Raleigh artist Bill Thelen and a Duke student art exhibition; make a screen print with Durham artist Bill Fick and DJs from WXDU; try 3D printing in the makerspace. Leading-edge Australian choreographer Antony Hamilton and sound artist and dancer Alisdair Macindoe will offer a sneak peek of MEETING, a Duke Performances show featuring music-making robots, the Duke Dance Program will offer workshops—and more!
