What's On View

There is always something new to see on view at the Ackland!

The Ackland presents approximately 10-12 changing exhibitions a year, with more than half the Museum’s gallery space dedicated to special and traveling exhibitions. These shows feature a wide stylistic range of art, from contemporary American photography to European master paintings, from video installations to early modern portraits. A portion of the Museum’s permanent collection of over 19,000 works of art is always on view.

A walk through the Ackland can be an introduction to ancient Greek vases, Eugène Delacroix, and Andy Warhol—all in the same day. Come see what’s on view at the Ackland today!
