- Visiting Artist
- Nina Chanel Abney
The first visiting artist in the Ruby is Chicago-born painter Nina Chanel Abney, whose large-scale paintings take on some of today’s most pressing social justice issues.
A nimble steering committee helps determine the programming mission and scope for the Rubenstein Arts Center. Working closely with Scott Lindroth, Vice Provost for the Arts, the committee reviews potential programs, arts project team applications, and other proposals for the Ruby—ensuring that each event, exhibit, and collaborator help drive artistic innovation at Duke forward.
The steering committee includes representatives of the facility’s principal stakeholders—the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts, University Center Activities and Events–Student Affairs, the Programs in Dance and Arts of the Moving Image—and from the broader Duke Arts community.
