Class Requests

Students in the Nasher's study storage.

The Nasher Museum is open by appointment to Duke faculty, classes and students during Fall 2020.

We invite Duke faculty to reserve a time for their students to engage with the Nasher collection and exhibitions through in person self-guided tours and/or facilitated Zoom sessions with Nasher staff. This program begins September 7. To make a reservation and/or to discuss how the Nasher can support your teaching, whether in person, hybrid or online only, please email Ellen C. Raimond, Ph.D., Assistant Curator of Academic Initiatives, at

Temporary Viewing of Specific Works

Duke faculty may request that the museum make specific works of art temporarily available to students to support course themes or objectives. Works of art would be on view within the Great Hall or Lecture Hall for facilitated, safe viewing. For example, students might approach works of art one by one, for close viewing. To arrange for a special viewing please email Ellen C. Raimond, Ph.D., Assistant Curator of Academic Initiatives, at These opportunities are limited.

Keep in Mind

The museum is not open on evenings and weekends, even by appointment. Our classrooms and Study Storage rooms will not be available to classes, faculty or students this fall semester.
