A major new center for the arts on the Duke University campus, the Nasher Museum of Art, will open in October. The Museum will foster multidisciplinary learning and will place new importance on modern and contemporary art.
Duke University’s Museum of Art has seen many changes over the last four years under new director Dr. Michael Mezzatesta. The building and galleries have been updated and interdepartmental cooperation has been important to the museum’s success. This cooperation with other disciplines has led to the award of a National Endowment for the Humanities Planning Grant. Plans are also underway to build a new art museum between the East and West Campuses. The new building will showcase their major holdings of Pre-Columbian Art, one of the premier collections of such art in the world.
