About Ruby Fridays
Ruby Fridays are casual art talks offered at noon most Fridays during the semester in the Rubenstein Arts Center’s Ruby Lounge. Speakers include Duke faculty and students who are creating or exhibiting work in the Ruby, visiting artists from far and wide, and local creatives. Learn about the amazing art being created on Duke’s campus, the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more. A free lunch is included!
About the Speaker
Cameron Oglesby is a Duke sophomore pursuing a degree in Environmental Science with a focus in ecology, an Earth and Ocean Science minor, and a certificate in Civic Engagement and Social Change. Though an environmentalist in practice, she is an artist at heart, and believes in art’s ability to incite change or reform opinions and human behaviors. She is currently the president of Environmental Alliance, a representative on the Campus Sustainability Committee and the Environmental Affairs Committee, and a VP of Programming for duARTS. The Enviro-Art Gallery, a project which she brought from high school, is a means of combining her two passions in a way that informs, engages, and, hopefully, inspires.
