Accessible Culture: Summer Days and Nasher Nights
Art fans, foodies, music lovers, and local adventurers be jubilant! Summer Days and Nasher Nights are upon us once again with popup dinners, wine tastings, live music, local beer and much more.
Nasher isn’t a stuffy fine arts museum, and the cool factor of Summer Days and Nasher Nights proves it. Now in its fifth season, the summer series offers wine tastings, live music, book discussions, crafts, free films, and a chance to interact with all kinds of interesting people from around Durham. Events are free to get into, but expect to pay if you get hungry. Summer Days and Nasher Nights events are on Thursday evenings and the occasional Sunday afternoon—a great way to begin or cap a weekend in the Triangle.
About Duke Arts Annex:
The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke houses over 10,000 pieces of art in their permanent collection, which is augmented by rotating exhibits. Nasher was originally founded in 1969 as the Duke University Museum of Art, and it was located in one of the university’s former science buildings until the new building was completed in 2005. The museum’s collection is strong in four main areas: medieval art, art of the Americas (largely pre-Columbian), classical antiquities, and modern and international contemporary art. Plus, getting cultured has never been so cost effective! For regular museum entrance, expect to pay $5 for Adults, $4 for Seniors, and $3 for non-Duke students with student ID. Nasher also has parking lot that fits about 100 cars for $2 and hour.
