Following a grand reopening in August, 2017, one of North Carolina State University’s most historic buildings is the permanent home of the Gregg Museum of Art & Design. A 15,000 sq ft addition to the 8000 sq ft Historic Chancellor’s Residence has increased the museum’s visibility while significantly adding to its exhibition and programming space.
The Gregg Museum’s collection of more than 34,000 objects includes holdings in textiles and clothing, ceramics, folk and Native American art, photography, design and decorative arts. From 19th century Japanese color woodblock prints to antique North Carolina quilts, the collection spans cultures and disciplines.
The collection includes a large holding of Outsider Art, as well as Textiles, Ceramics, Paintings, Photography, Sculpture, Architectural drawings, Archaeological artifacts, Ethnographic materials, and Modern furniture.
