The Ruby is a catalyst for creativity and a home for making art at Duke.

Meet the Ruby!

The Rubenstein Arts Center is home to two academic departments, the student-run radio station, artist residencies, DukeCreate free arts workshops, and a variety of arts events hosted by organizations across campus.

The student-led tour program is currently suspended and the arts center is closed to visitors to minimize health and safety risks to our community. More information.

Duke University Union student members Frank (DUU President), Max (LDOC Chair), Finn (Special Events Chair), and Catherine (Chief Financial Officer) invited incoming first-years on a “virtual” tour of the arts center in August 2020.
