The Duke Arts Festival Continues

The Duke Arts Fes­ti­val is still going strong. The ex­hi­bition of visual art in the Bryan Center will be up through the week­end and stu­dents will con­tinue to per­form in and around the Bryan Center and Per­kins li­brary. Dan­cer and con­cept­ual art­ist Ralph Lemon is in re­si­dence, The Theme is Black­ness theater fes­ti­val has be­gun, and so has the Duke-UNC Chopin/Schumann fes­ti­val.

The Link Media Wall installation One Blithe Day, by visiting artist Fatimah Tuggar, will have its opening reception on Friday in Perkins Library. There are poetry readings on Thursday and Friday. And on Sunday, Duke Performances is bringing the great Allen Toussaint to Page Auditorium. So you see that there's plenty to look forward to — see the festival schedule for details.

We've had quite a few student performances in the last week and a half — pianists have been playing in the alcove surrounded by student artwork, string quartets and a capella groups have set up by the doors of Perkins library, dancers have been moving it on the plaza. And the Duke University Percussion Ensemble (DUPE) did their thing on the bus.

Here are a few pictures — breakdancing from Stop Motion Crew, stills from DUPE on the bus, mural painting on the plaza, and a reception amongst the paintings and photos in the Bryan Center.
