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

Flexible Visual Arts Spaces

The Badger-Mars Visual Arts Wing at the Ruby includes:

  • a flexible gallery space with moveable walls and custom lighting capacity that can transition from site-specific installation, to critique room, to exhibition space
  • 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
view of a site-specific gallery installation under blue lights.
