Nasher10 Homecoming 

When: Sun., Oct. 4 2015




It's been a decade since Duke University's art museum escaped from academic-building obscurity and moved into Rafael Viñoly's geometric postmodern building on Campus Drive, becoming the Nasher Museum of Art. In that time, the museum has substantially increased its holdings and its national reputation as a producer of major touring exhibits. Following the renovation of Wilson Pavilion to showcase more of its permanent collection, the Nasher's 10th-anniversary celebration kicks into high gear with the Nasher10 Homecoming party. The highlight is the unveiling of a new mural by the internationally noted painter Odili Donald Odita, but there will be many other activities, too. There are various tours with artists and curators, concerts, a performance by Duke Dance Program students inspired by Odita's mural and remarks by the likes of museum director Sarah Schroth, Mayor Bill Bell and Duke president Richard H. Brodhead. It's the perfect time to catch up with one of the area's top museums, which has been brimming with new energy as of late—and to find out where it's headed in the next 10 years. Noon4 p.m., free, 2001 Campus Drive, Durham, 919-684-5135, —Brian Howe
