President // Eliza Henne
Hey all! My name is Eliza and I'm a junior from Silver Spring, Maryland. I'm an Art History major/Chemistry minor aiming to be an art conservator. My passions are all things artistic! I've played violin since kindergarten, drawing and painting are my favorite hobbies, and I've even dabbled in theater. At Duke, I’m a member of Club Ballroom Dance and the Catholic Center’s music ministry. I’m glad to be part of this amazing family advocating for the arts on campus!
Executive Vice President // Emily Sandberg
Hi everyone! My name is Emily, and I'm so excited to be the EVP for duARTS this year! I'm a rising junior double majoring in evolutionary anthropology and psychology and this is my third year in duARTS! I enjoy visual art and play the electric guitar, but when I'm not doing something creative, you can find me at the puppy kindergarten or enjoying a panera grilled cheese. I look forward to supporting artists across our campus and being a part of this amazing community!
Hello! My name is AJ, and I am from Cary, NC. I plan to complete a neuroscience and psychology IDM with a minor in visual arts. Throughout the day, you can find me scrambling from one student org meeting to the next--so reach out if you ever want to get involved in arts-related groups. My favorite pass time, besides streaming shows and talking with friends, is pickleball. Come say hi to me and the Duke team on the East Campus courts sometime, and try out the sport!
Hi! I’m Alice and I’m a sophomore from Beijing. At Duke, I plan on studying neuroscience. Outside of classes, I’m involved in Duke Partnership for Service and am a Baldwin Scholar. Apart from that, I love drawing, painting, and staying active. Super excited to part of the DuArts family!
Hi! My name is Savanna Woods, and I am a junior at Duke this year. I am studying Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, but despite my STEM focused academic life, I try to spend my free-time doing anything arts related. I am a trumpet player in the Baldwin Brass Quintet here at Duke, as well as an avid lover and participant of the Swing Dance club. I am from Richmond, Virginia. The pup in the picture is also my dog named Apollo!
Hi! My name is Ava. I’m a sophomore from Pinehurst, NC. Currently, I’m thinking about majoring in cultural anthropology and/or economics. I love many different types of art and my dream job would be to work for an art museum. Besides DuArts, I’m involved in Duke UNICEF, theater, and The Standard. My goal with Outreach is ensure the arts are an inclusive and welcoming space for all students to express their creativity. You can usually find me working (or procrastinating) in Vondy!
Hello! I'm Piper, a sophomore from Montgomery, NJ. I was a first year programming intern last year and am now Co-VP of Programming with Savanna. When I'm not studying biology and computer science I love to draw, claim my sister's dog as my own (see pic), and play frisbee. I'm excited to collaborate with other groups on campus and organize some awesome arts programming like craft handouts, workshops, and seasonal events.
Hey hey hey! My name is Davey and I’m a junior from Miami Beach studying Neuroscience! My early art experience was in dance, and now you can catch me attempting graphic design on my iPad. I am involved in a few other things on campus, like Duke Tour Guides and TEDxDuke, but love duARTS because of the amazing arts community here on campus! I will be abroad in the fall taking a course in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Creativity, so catch me when I come back to Duke at all our events in the Sprin
Hi! My name is Olivia Bokesch and I’m a sophomore from Columbia, SC. I’m studying Economics and Visual Media Studies to combine my love for both business and creativity. My main passions are fashion photography, journalism, and development economics. Aside from duARTS, I serve as an Associate Opinion Editor for the Duke Chronicle and as VP of Marketing for Scale and Coin Business Society. I’m excited to help grow and maintain the Duke arts community!
Hihi ;D I’m Sophia, a rising sophomore from Toronto. At Duke, I major in neuroscience and double minor in psychology and visual arts, but pre-Duke, I was a visual arts major through and through. I am involved in Duke University Union and Duke Chinese Dance and hope to use the cool medium that is ~the arts~ to bridge the diverse communities on campus. When I am not crying about chemistry, you might find me writing, painting, or napping. If you are interested in a collaboration, please reach out!
Hi! I'm Anna Grace and I'm a sophomore from Georgia studying Visual Arts and Religion. In my free time I love painting or crafting and I'm also member of the Duke Climate Coalition and Earthy Creations! I'm so excited to be part of the duARTS exec board this year and I can't wait to help plan fun arts events around campus!
Hi! I'm Andre, and I’m a senior from Miami, Florida, majoring in chem and minoring in music and bio. I’m a member of the David Heid piano studio at Duke, and I’m currently working on putting together a senior piano recital. I love making crosswords, going to the beach with friends, and learning about art history at local museums. As a new member of the duARTS exec team, I’ve been working on learning to play guitar, because it’s never too late to learn a new skill or get involved in the arts!
