University Students & Faculty

As a part of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the Weatherspoon plays a unique role in engaging learners across disciplines and research fields. Visual Literacy, or how we recognize and understand ideas conveyed through visible images, is at the core of our learning philosophy.

We invite discussion and collaboration with students and faculty through gallery classes, guided tours, or community engagement activities tailored to your curriculum objectives. Contact the Education department at or 336-334-5770.

Foundations for Learning at UNCG

Foundations for Learning is a course designed to help first-year students make a successful transition to UNCG. The Weatherspoon offers an interactive tour for FFL classes aimed looking at art, discussing different points of view, and feeling comfortable within the museum.

Ways to get involved

Falk Visiting Artist Program

Each semester, a guest artist is invited by the Falk Visiting Artist committee to present a solo exhibition at the Weatherspoon and participate in a three-day residency comprised of graduate critiques and public talks. The program gives students at UNCG and members of the community an opportunity to meet and learn from artists who are active in the field. The program has been produced collaboratively with the Art Department since 1982. Past Falk Visiting Artists include Lynda Benglis, Dario Robleto, Julie Heffernan, and Dike Blair.

Faculty & Student Exhibitions

The UNCG Faculty Biennial features recent work by Department of Art studio art faculty in a group exhibition organized at the Weatherspoon Art Museum. Each Spring, graduate students in studio art present their thesis work in a group exhibition also at the Weatherspon.
