Art Fills the Halls of Duke Divinity School

Jo Bailey Wells, associate professor of the practice of Christian ministry and Bible and the director of Anglican studies, is leading a group charged with enhancing the space of Duke Divinity School with displays and exhibits of various styles of art. Projects include a partnership with Duke University’s Nasher Museum of Art to install six modern American paintings in the Westbrook building hallway, a display of rural church photography sponsored by The Duke Endowment, and collaborations with Duke’s Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies to host visiting artists and their work. In the coming months, the group plans to install a series of portraits in the Langford building hallways, as well as update the Kilgo entrance to the Divinity School.
