Backstory and Context
The Gregg has an interesting history. It evolved from just a collection into a museum. In the 1960’s, NC State started the collection as part of the school of design. Eventually, in 1992, the collection was moved to an addition to the university student center and stayed there until 2013. It was housed in a temporary location until the current museum was opened in 2017. The museum is named for John and Nancy Gregg who not only supported the museum but also donated their vast collection of American Indian art to it.
Like many museums, The Gregg presents programs which are free and open to the public. It also offers class visits, internships and workshops. Additionally, the space can be rented for functions when the museum is not open.
