I could not be more overjoyed with our partnership. What a perfect alignment of like commitments to Durham's communities of color! Moreover, ours to enrich the quality of life of minority youth through enriching and engaging art experiences and the Nasher's unwavering emphasis on recognizing and supporting emerging artists of color. It is indeed a distinct pleasure for we Links to facilitate a broader awareness of the Nasher and "her" exhibitions/programs within Durham's communities of color.Angela Terry, former President, Nasher Museum Friends Board, and member, Durham Chapter of the Links, Inc.
The Nasher Museum and Durham Chapter of the Links, Inc., have nurtured an important partnership to bring new audiences to the museum. Recently, on a recommendation by the Links, a group of African American and Latino students from a Durham charter school visited the Nasher Museum for a guided tour through exhibitions—and a free bus scholarship. The Links are helping to spread the word about the museum’s new Association of Art Museum Directors Diversity Internship Program for area college students. Links members are also helping reach out to seniors about the Nasher Museum’s Reflections program for people with dementia and their care partners. After attending a Theatre of Movement performance at the Nasher Museum last fall, members of the Links invited the dance company to perform for school children during Black History Month. The Nasher Museum is a proud sponsor of the Durham Chapter of the Links, Inc., annual Shades of Green Fashion Show and Luncheon.
