The Ackland’s permanent collection galleries have been re-imagined, re-designed, and re-installed.
Focus on the Peck Collection is an ongoing series of installations selected from the Peck Collection and the Ackland’s other holdings of related works of art, with the goal of supporting education in comparative looking, historical analysis, and appreciation of quality.
Open year-round, ART& will host artist talks, performances, art-making classes, and much more!
This exhibition will present significant works of art that have been given to the Ackland in honor of the Museum’s 60th anniversary.
Step Right Up, a “stickwork” by Chapel Hill-based artist Patrick Dougherty, is the Ackland’s first major site-specific, outdoor art installation in nearly 20 years.
Spanning several millennia, as well as the color spectrum, this show presents a continent’s rich history of innovation, invention, and imitation.
