The Ruby is a catalyst for creativity and a new home for making art at Duke University.

Growing a Culture for Art at Duke

The arts thrive at Duke. Leading academic programs, critically-acclaimed presenting organizations, and embedded visiting artists create connections between campus, the cultural momentum of Durham, NC, and international thinkers, makers, and performers. With sixteen undergraduate and graduate degree programs offered in the arts and over seventy arts-oriented student organizations, Duke students from all backgrounds engage with artistic practice. At Duke, the arts are an engine of collaboration and innovation. By linking arts experiences and creative practice to classroom inquiry, the Vice Provost for the Arts and Duke Arts work to embed art into the mainstream Duke experience.
