Ackland Upstairs (formerly the Study Gallery) enables UNC-Chapel Hill faculty to have art installed specifically for the in-person use of their classes.
The public is encouraged to visit Ackland Upstairs during the Museum’s open hours in the fall and spring semester; it is closed in the summer.

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.
