Pool party at Blake's house! Join the Duke SoCal LGBTQ Network for a very special event in the Hollywood Hills. It's Homecoming Weekend, and we're having a west coast-style homecoming with a pool party at 2:30 PM and a cookout at 5:00 PM. Throughout the day, Blake will be opening his home for a private viewing of his world-class art collection.

Blake Byrne '57 is Chairman Emeritus of Duke's Nasher Museum and received Duke's 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award. He has been named as one of ARTnews magazine’s top 200 collectors in the world. In 2005, Blake made a gift of 123 works of art to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles—the largest private donation in the history of the museum. In 2017, he made a gift to the Nasher of 38 pieces, comprised of 284 individual works of art.

Now you’ll have the opportunity to see his private collection in the comfort of your own swim suit, and you’ll get to ask why one of our favorite Blue Devils is moving from Paris to Durham!

Register early as space is limited! Registration will close on Tuesday, September 12. Adults (18 and above) only, please.
