The centerpiece of the annual Duke Arts Festival (October 26–November 4), which celebrates student work in all visual art forms and performance genres, is a major on-campus exhibition of work by Duke students. Works cover a variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, graphic design, printing, digital art, and film, created by student artists from all areas of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
This year’s exhibition includes New Views, a selection of individual photography and film work by ten students (see below) in the Duke MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts program. Visiting professor and MFA exhibit curator Bill Fick said of the students, in an article in Duke Today, ”They’re a little different from the rest of the Duke art community. Most of the festival is made up of undergraduate work, but these students are training to become professional artists.” A closing reception will be held on Saturday November 3, from 11:45 a.m.–1:30 p.m.
