ICYMI: While the Blues were Battling So Were the Art Museums

Last night was the first of two “Battle of the Blues” match ups between Duke and Carolina this season. I’m sure many of you watched and you were left either jubilant or dejected with the outcome. Spirits on both sides of that famed rivalry run high. However while glued to the TV screen some of you may have missed another battle taking place on Twitter, an #ArtBattle between Nasher Museum on the Duke campus and UNC’s Ackland Art Museum

It started something like this before the game …

  Then the game was on and things turned, well, a little catty.

And as time ticked away in regulation time, into overtime, the stress of the situation was evident.

Make sure you’re tuned into Twitter on March 7th for the next battle. In the meantime, don’t miss the closing weekend for the Miró exhibit at Nasher and stop in the Ackland to see their latest “Genius and Grace“.

Addendum:  Since the Miró exhibit closed at the Nasher, I’ve since learned there’s a website devoted to making all of the world’s art accessible to anyone online. Check out Artsy and their Miró page for more information about the artist.
