CARRIE MAE WEEMS SOCIAL STUDIES 101 PROJECT
“We are drawn to Carrie Mae Weems’ work because she illustrates how public art can help communities process the complex social challenges posed by COVID-19. … We believe art can call attention to the interconnectedness of our collective histories and inspire us to work together towards a healthier and more equitable future.” – Alyah Baker, Lee Edwards and Courtney Liu, MFA candidates at Duke

The Nasher Museum is fully open to the public with ongoing health and safety protocols and free admission for all, including Thursday nights and weekends. We strongly encourage all individuals to be fully vaccinated before visiting the Nasher.
