One of the things we enjoy using the Digital Collections Blog for is to highlight notable items from Duke’s digital collections and tell you why we think they’re interesting, or thought-provoking, or important, or funny. But there are some digital objects where it’s obvious why we love them, so no explanation seems necessary. This image, from the Sidney D. Gamble Photographs, is one of those.
This is Tiger Baby, who we love BECAUSE HE IS AWESOME. Seriously, come on. You can’t not love this.

A new exhibit entitled “Displacement: The Three Gorges Dam in Contemporary Chinese Art” opens tonight at the Nasher Museum of Art here at Duke. In the exhibit, four contemporary artists respond to the Three Gorges Dam, a project to build a hydroelectric dam across the Yangtze River, completed near Yichang, China, in 2008. Construction of the dam “displaced more than one million people and submerged more than 1,200 towns,” including some important cultural and archaeological sites.
