The Gregg Museum of Art & Design at North Carolina State University provides resources for the study of art, craft, design, creativity, history and social or personal expression. Through tours, lectures and classes, its audiences experience and appreciate work in the media of textiles, ceramics, photography, wood, glass and metals. The Gregg staff works directly with the faculty of North Carolina State University to arrange tours of the collection and exhibitions, and the use of particular objects from our collection in courses across the campus. The Museum establishes collaborative faculty relationships that make the collection and exhibitions available to students for the purpose of interdisciplinary study. Educational programs and internships encourage critical thinking, writing and research, and the publications that accompany each exhibition leave written and visual documentation for future study.
Resources for Faculty:
• Schedule “private tours” of rotating exhibitions as well as behind-the-scenes tours of our permanent collection, which includes over 20,000 objects from all over the world.
• With advanced notice, our staff can pull objects specifically related to course curriculum for student visits
• If classes are not able to visit the Gregg, our staff can present PowerPoint image-based presentations in student classrooms featuring objects from the permanent collection that pertain to any particular class lesson!
• Our Artists and Objects special event series presents fascinating programs every month. These include lectures, events, films and informal discussions focusing on the Gregg Museum’s permanent collection and current exhibitions. Meet and engage with guest artists, curators, distinguished visiting scholars and members of the arts community. We encourage your students to attend but please warn them that these events are popular, so it’s best to arrive early to get a good seat!
• On-line library available to search (see Multimedia)
