The Ackland’s second-floor Study Gallery enables UNC-Chapel Hill faculty to have art installed specifically for the in-person use of their classes.

The public is invited to view the art in the Study Gallery during the Museum’s open hours. During the fall and spring semesters, the Study Gallery is open to the general public whenever the Museum is open; it is closed during the summer.

UNC FACULTY: In a typical Study Gallery display, eight to ten works of art are on view for a six-week period, during which time faculty members arrange to hold class sessions in front of the works and/or ask students to visit on their own time to complete assignments.

There are only a few spaces available in the Spring Semester 2017. If you are interested in learning more please fill out the form below.
