The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University owns more than 10,000 works of art which are displayed in rotating installations.
The permanent collection is strong in four core areas. The collection began with a gift of 200 works of Medieval art, and has since grown to hold Art of the Americas (largely pre-Columbian), Classical Antiquities, and Modern and international contemporary art, with a concentration in art from the African diaspora.
Holdings also include Traditional African, pre-1945 European and American, Asian and Russian art.
