Ackland Upstairs (formerly the Study Gallery) enables UNC-Chapel Hill faculty to have art installed specifically for the in-person use of their classes.

For UNC Faculty
In a typical Ackland Upstairs display, eight to ten works of art are on view for an eight-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.
