University Students and Faculty Tours

The Weatherspoon Art Museum is dedicated to providing teaching and learning opportunities that inspire creativity, promote visual literacy, and foster communication across disciplines. Virtual option available.

This unique WAM initiative uses modern and contemporary art to help students in nursing and health and human sciences fields enhance their visual diagnostic and communication skills while promoting awareness of the critical role observation plays in clinical practice.

Interdisciplinary Connections

Works of art can support, expand, or challenge ideas, texts, or skills that are fundamental to courses in the humanities and sciences. WAM educators work with faculty to custom design class discussions and activities that foster interdisciplinary thinking.
Object-based study opportunities for UNCG faculty and students.

Visual Arts at UNC Greensboro

The UNCG School of Art, located a short walk from WAM in the Maud Gatewood Studio Arts Building, features classrooms, studios, and the Gatewood Gallery—an exhibition space for visiting artists, UNCG students, and faculty.

A joint collaboration with the museum since 1982, the renown Herbert and Louise Falk Visiting Artist Program gives UNCG and members of the community an opportunity to meet and learn from mid-and late career artists active in the field today. Falk Visiting Artists chosen annually by committee provide graduate studio critiques and a public lecture and present a solo exhibition at WAM.
