Lea describes Duke University's new art museum, which opens in October 2005. The museum is named for benefactor Raymond D. Nasher, a 1943 Duke alumnus and was designed by Uruguayan-born architect Rafael Vinoly. The Nashers collected modern American and pre-Columbian art. Their 20th-century modern sculpture collection is one of the world's most extensive and significant private collections. The 65,000-square-foot museum features 14,000 square feet of exhibit space, a cafe, a museum shop, and classrooms.
