Grand Reopening; Gregg Museum of Art & Design

August 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

New Facility

One of NC State University’s most historic buildings will soon be the permanent home of the Gregg Museum of Art & Design.

The Historic Chancellor’s Residence, located at 1903 Hillsborough Street, along with the 15,000 sq ft addition currently under construction will increase the museum’s visibility while significantly adding to its exhibition and programming space. Construction is currently underway, and the grand opening is slated for August 26, 2017.

Building History

Built in 1927, the elegant Georgian mansion housed NC State’s chancellors from 1928 until 2011 when Chancellor Randy Woodson and his wife, Susan, moved to the The Point on Centennial Campus. The building was designed by renowned architect Hobart Upjohn, who was also responsible for some of NC State’s most handsome buildings, including Brooks Hall (College of Design) and Thompson Hall (University Theatre and the Crafts Center).
