As part of Duke Performances’ Music Maker 25—a five-day festival in downtown Durham this December celebrating 25 years of Music Maker Relief Foundation—several large-scale reproductions of portraits from Duffy’s most recent collection, Blue Muse, will be on display in (and on) the Rubenstein Arts Center through January 31, 2020.
