Come for the Art – Join for the Benefits

Nasher Museum members help support exciting, internationally renowned exhibitions and at the same time support the museum’s mission. Funds from membership directly supports artistic scholarship – locally, nationally and internationally, free K-12 education programs for thousands of students and community collaborations and outreach.

Immerse yourself. Find new ways to connect with the community and art through the museum’s various captivating events and programs.

My father would often remark that art is like air and water – it is needed to survive and 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 own vision.
