Nasher Sculpture Park at Duke University Officially Opens
30-09-2019

A public inauguration was held to celebrate the opening of the Duke Sculpture Garden on Saturday, September 28th. The first phase of Sculpture Park by West 8 crafts a sleek connection between the Rubenstein Arts Center and the Nasher Museum of Art, vastly improving accessibility throughout the Duke Arts Campus and creating a flexible space for outdoor study sessions, performances and movie nights.

Brooklyn-based, Israeli-born artist Naama Tsabar performed two immersive performances, featuring 21 local musicians who identify as women and/or gender nonconforming. Divided into three bands, individual musicians stood atop their amplifiers, each band played separate songs that shared the same four chords, musical scale, and beats per minute. The performances were followed by an open house held at the Rubenstein Arts Center.
