This exhibition will present significant works of art that have been given to the Ackland in honor of the Museum’s 60th anniversary.
Open year-round, ART& will host artist talks, performances, art-making classes, and much more!
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.
In this beautifully designed installation, the Ackland presents a powerful and stimulating selection of over 260 works from its extensive permanent collection.
