The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University will open its new building designed by architect Rafael Viñoly on Oct. 2, 2005, creating a major new center for the arts on campus. The $23 million museum will foster multidisciplinary learning and serve the Research Triangle area. The former Duke University Museum of Art (DUMA) closed in May 2004. The new museum will inaugurate its two new special exhibition galleries with The Evolution of the Nasher Collection and The Forest: Politics, Poetics and Practice, reflecting the museum’s increased focus on modern and contemporary art. It is located at Duke University Road and Anderson Street, adjacent to the Sarah. P. Duke Gardens.
