Since 1958, The Ackland Art Museum has been one of North Carolina's most important cultural resources.
Part of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Ackland Art Museum serves broad local, state, and national constituencies. The Ackland's permanent collection consists of more than 16,000 works of art, featuring North Carolina's premier collections of Asian art and works of art on paper (drawings, prints, and photographs), as well as significant collections of European masterworks, twentieth-century and contemporary art, African art, and North Carolina pottery. In addition to having selections from its permanent collection always on view, the Ackland organizes more than a dozen special exhibitions a year.
The Ackland is located on S. Columbia Street, near the Franklin Street intersection in downtown Chapel Hill. Click for directions.
