In November 2010, the North Carolina State University Board of Trusteees embraced a bold new vision for the Gregg Museum and voted to move the Gregg Museum of Art & Design to the historic chancellor's residence at 1903 Hillsborough Street in Raleigh, NC. The future Gregg Museum of Art & Design will be the permanent home of NC State's collecting art museum. The site of the new Gregg will include the 1927 residence designed by Hobart Upjohn, a 15,000+ square foot contemporary addition designed by the Freelon Group, and various outdoor spaces designed by Surface 678 (formerly Lappas + Havener).
The total cost of the project is $9.1 million. In a true public-private partnership, the university is funding half of the project's total cost, including $3 million in student fees and $850,000 in other university funds. The Gregg Museum Campaign is a commitment to raise $3.9 million in private funding from individuals, corporations, and foundations. This effort is led by a volunteer Gregg Museum Campaign Committee, comprised of alumni and community leaders.
NC State will not begin renovation of the historic chancellor's residence or construction on the contemporary addition until the entire project cost of $9.1 million is committed. The Gregg Museum vacated its current space in Talley Student Center in May 2013 to accommodate Talley's ongoing renovation and construction. Therefore the sooner the Gregg Museum Campaign reaches its fund-raising goal of $3.9 million, the sooner the new Gregg will be able to fulfill its mission to NC State students and to the community. Once the project attains its funding goal, construction should take approximately 18 months. With your help, the new Gregg will open in early 2016.
The Gregg Museum Campaign is the combined effort of the campus and broader communities. Join your fellow community members and alumni by giving to the Gregg Museum Campaign.
