NCSU's Gregg Art Museum is moving to Hillsborough Street

SEP 10, 2011

The Gregg Art Musuem, long since situated in Talley Student Center is making a big move and heading for the old Chancellor's residence on Hillsborough Street.  The University has plans to create a seamlesss transition from Pullen Park's Theatre in the Park to the new museum space while preserving the tranquil nature of the property.

"The 2010 Gregg Museum of Art and Design Site Feasibility Study for the Chancellor’s Residence calls for limited renovations to the existing building and an approximately 17,000 GSF addition east/southeast of the building.
The existing building is envisioned to house administrative offices on the second floor, meeting, pre-function, and catering spaces on the first floor, and storage on the current basement level. The existing residential character of the main level spaces is to be preserved and enhanced with display of the museum’s collections as appropriate.
The addition will house a new entry lobby, galleries, and outdoor spaces on the first floor, with exhibit support and collections processing spaces on the basement level. The addition will provide connectivity and accessibility to the existing building on all three levels, as well as connectivity to the existing formal gardens to the south."
