Duke's Unique Teaching Spaces: The Rubenstein Arts Center
The Rubenstein Arts Center (the Ruby) is a hub for artistic production at Duke University. Students, faculty, visiting artists, and other collaborators come together in flexible project studios to hone their skills and create new work. Public programs—including performances, film screenings and exhibitions—launch this work into the world. The Ruby is also home to the programs in Dance and the Arts of the Moving Image and WXDU 88.7 FM, Duke’s student-run radio station. The 70,000+ square foot building encompasses flexible multipurpose studios, seminar classrooms, a makerspace, the Ruby Lounge, the von der Heyden Studio Theater, a film screening theater, and more.
In this session, hear about current and upcoming exhibits and programs and discuss how you can make the Rubenstein Arts Center a part of your class as you enjoy a tour of the gallery, exhibits, multipurpose rooms, and studios.
