- a painting studio that hosts visiting artists and arts project residencies, and features north-facing windows, ventilation, a mess-sink, and easels
- the makerspace and a multipurpose studio on the first floor
Host Your Exhibit in the Ruby Gallery
The Rubenstein Arts Center welcomes applications from Duke University partners (students, faculty, staff, and community collaborators) to host an exhibition in the Ruby's gallery. Limited funding is available to assist with the costs of hardware, equipment, installation, and promotion. Applications are being accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.
