COVID-19: News and Campus Updates


Public Events and the Visiting Artist Program

UNC Galleries' educational mission offers numerous opportunities for college students, faculty, K-12 teachers, and the community to enjoy our exhibitions. We activate each of our exhibitions with programs such as: artist talks, interdisciplinary panels, gallery receptions and hands-on workshops. All our public programs are free to UNC students and the public.

The Visiting Artist (VA) Program welcomes experts from around the country to Greeley for one-day campus visits or week-long "micro-residencies." The VA Program offers unique opportunities for firsthand discussion with artists, curators and scholars to provide a closer look at how creative professionals live and work. Visitors present their practices in public lectures and are integrated into the curriculum through targeted, intentional classroom visits, individual student critiques and collaborative workshops. 

All UNC Gallery exhibitions and public programs are FREE and open to the public!
