The Galleries are a teaching program of the School of Art and Design that supports UNC’s mission to promote student-centered, effective learning. Our exhibition program embraces curatorial risk-taking and highlights thought provoking and socially relevant context from regional and nationally recognized artists. The Galleries involve the participation of faculty and students as the advisors, co-curators, and collaborators that enable the program to often realize new work.
The Visiting Artist Program offers unique opportunities for students to engage with and learn from artists, curators and scholars to provide a closer look at how creative professionals live and work. Visitors present their work in public lectures and are integrated into curriculum through targeted classroom visits, individual student critiques, professional practice workshops and more!
