The arts at Duke have experienced tremendous growth in recent years, with nearly $100M invested in new facilities and programs in the last ten years. Today, DukeArts comprises an expansive network of academic programs, presenters, student organizations, and community partners. The Duke Arts Center, a $50M, 70,000 square foot facility opening in the fall of 2017, will support visiting artists in residence, interdisciplinary arts project teams, and academic programming in dance and media.
The Vice Provost for the Arts convenes the Council for the Arts, an organization that includes arts department chairs, the Dean of Humanities, University Development, and News and Communications to advise the administration on arts programming on campus. Faculty may apply for funding to support arts instruction and artist residencies to enhance their teaching and research.
