The Weatherspoon Art Museum holds the only collection of its kind—focusing on modern and contemporary art—in North Carolina. It also enjoys a growing regional, national and international reputation. Now numbering close to 6,000 works of art, the collection has grown in large part through the ongoing generosity of the museum’s many friends—in gifting art, funds to purchase art, or acquisition endowments. As part of our 75th celebration, supporters are further enhancing the collection with current and promised gifts. Some of these were seen in the 2010 exhibition, Inquiring Eyes: Greensboro Collects, but many will be displayed now for the first time.

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
