Permanent Collection

The Gregg Museum’s permanent collection of more than 35,000 objects includes major holdings in textiles and clothing, ceramics, folk and Native American art, photography, design and decorative arts. We also have the largest collection of outsider art in North Carolina.

The Gregg Museum believes in making art accessible. However, due to delays in the reopening of the  new building and the pending demolition of our offsite storage facility, the staff is currently focused  on the relocation of the Gregg’s collection of over 35,000 objects. Collection items that are not already included in the current exhibitions at the museum will be unavailable until after the completion of the collection move in late 2018. Please contact registrar Mary Hauser at with any questions.
