n 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 April 20.

Drop by the Ruby on Fridays at noon for a casual art talk and free lunch to learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more. This is part of the MFA|EDA graduating class of 2020 season of events. For more information on exhibits and programs, visit
