The application period for residencies, gallery exhibitions, and Ruby visiting artist support is now open for the 2019–2020 academic year and Summer 2020!

The major benefits of this award are the space to create and the platform to present the work to the public without explicit production requirements. Certain media equipment and other tools can also provided by the arts center.

New for this cycle! Artists that are not affiliated with Duke are invited to apply for visual arts projects. We are currently developing the infrastructure for artists not affiliated with Duke to apply for a performing arts residency.
