The Nasher Museum was thrilled to welcome first-year Duke students into the museum on August 19, 2021, at the first-ever Duke Arts Block Party. Students perused the galleries, leaning in to find a new favorite work of art in our permanent collection. They picked up Nasher tote bags and signed up for free memberships to the museum.
Across the street at the Rubenstein Arts Center, students enjoyed Locopops, met the Poetry Fox, printed their own “Duke Arts Block Party” T-shirt and more. Outside in the Nasher’s piazza, about 500 students grooved to a live concert by Young Bull, presented by Duke Performances. Founded by two former Durham School of the Arts schoolmates, Mique Cameron and Solomon Fox, and later joined by Raleigh-based rapper, Christian Sinclair, Young Bull combines Southern soul with hip-hop beats.
