Faculty: Bring your class

The Gregg can be an extension of your classroom, a way for students to interact with objects related to your curriculum. More than 35,000 objects are at your disposal, including textiles, ceramics, furniture, industrial design objects, jewelry, sculpture, outside/visionary art, folk art, photography, works on paper and examples of fine craft.

Our educational programs encourage critical thinking, writing and research, and the publications that accompany each exhibition leave written and visual documentation for future study.

Gregg staff can:

  • Present an image-based presentation in your classroom that features objects from the permanent collection that pertain to any particular lesson.

You and your students can also meet guest artists, curators, distinguished visiting scholars and members of the arts community. Events include lectures, films and informal discussions that focus on the Gregg Museum’s permanent collection and current exhibitions. Please note that these events are popular, so it’s best to arrive early to get a good seat!

To schedule a tour or arrange a class visit, please complete the tour request form at go.ncsu.edu/greggtours. If you have questions about the Gregg’s educational programs, please contact Zoe Starling at zoe_starling@ncsu.edu.

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.

Following the collection move, staff can work with professors to arrange class visits with objects tailored to your curriculum pulled from the collection. We look forward to restarting this program in late 2018.
