Located on the second floor, Ackland Upstairs is a dynamic space, with art changing every eight weeks during the academic year. The Ackland staff collaborates with UNC-Chapel Hill faculty to create installations that support their courses, drawing from the thousands of artworks stored in the Museum’s vaults. As a result, there is always something new on view Upstairs, and always a new context in which to consider it. For faculty and students, Ackland Upstairs is an extension of their classroom. For all Ackland visitors, it offers a glimpse into the courses taught on campus and a window into the Museum’s extensive holdings.
