Art in the University Libraries at UNCG

The University Libraries at UNC Greensboro contain art and artifacts in their collections that create a
pleasing visual space for visitors, make a visit a worthwhile experience, and stimulate and inspire the creative and scholarly pursuits for which academic libraries are known.  A catalog of the art collection may be found in the Art in the University Libraries LibGuide.

Jackson Library opened in 1950 and was named a National Literary Landmark by Friends of Libraries USA in 2002.  An Art Committee consisting of members of the University Libraries faculty and staff maintains and cares for the collection and decides where individual pieces will hang.
