Rubenstein Arts Center and COVID-19 Updates
Important updates from Duke University that minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, the larger community, and Duke students, faculty, and staff.
Dear friends of the Ruby,
In order to minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, the larger community, and Duke students, faculty, and staff, Duke University has adopted new policies on spring semester classes, residential life, travel, events, and campus visitors.
In keeping with the university’s directives, we are cancelling public events at the Rubenstein Arts Center through May 7 (3/13/2020 update)
April 20. Starting today through March 22, building visiting hours will be 10–5, Monday through Friday. We will provide additional updates, including modifications to upcoming MFA EDA thesis exhibitions, soon.
March 13 update: The Rubenstein Arts Center is now closed to visitors, and events are cancelled through May 7. At this time, entry by DukeID is still permitted. (Find this update and the latest information on Duke’s Coronavirus response website.)
The arts are best experienced in community with one another, and I know this pause on our regular arts programming will be a challenging experience, but your safety is our top priority.
As this situation develops we will keep you updated, and I hope you join us later in the spring when programming resumes. Until then, I wish good health for you and your loved ones.
Thank you for being part of the Duke arts community,
Vice Provost for the Arts
