The Ackland’s second-floor Study Gallery enables UNC-Chapel Hill faculty to have art installed specifically for the in-person use of their classes.

The public is welcome in the Study Gallery during the Museum’s open hours in the fall and spring semester; the Study Gallery is closed in the summer.

UNC FACULTY: In a typical Study Gallery 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.
