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!

When I'm not in the lab or Duke's puppy kindergarten, I enjoy doing graphic design for Juhood Magazine, working in the Chronicle's photo department, and procrastinating my stats homework. I'm so excited to create engaging duARTS events for first-years and work with our amazing first-year interns!

Henry Park - Director of Outreach

Hi! I'm Henry, and I'm a sophomore from Irvine, California. I'm studying Psychology and Public Policy, and my favorite art forms include creative writing, digital art, and photography. I'm actually quite new to the arts, and my first real exposure only happened in high school. But in that short amount of time I've had, I realized the value of art in understanding people and their stories. I want to spend this year encouraging people who might be cautious about the arts to give it a chance!
