Through a generous endowment established by Lawrence J. Goldrich (UNC-CH ’57), the department showcases temporary installations of sculpture by students and alumni on the University grounds. A departmental committee manages the endowment. Undergraduate and graduate artworks are chosen through open competitions. Artists receive an honorarium.

The John and June Allcott Gallery has a three-tiered mission: (1) to exhibit the work of professional artists, (2) to exhibit faculty work, and (3) to provide exhibition opportunities for students. A faculty committee plans and manages the gallery exhibitions with the help of Graduate Assistants. Assistants take part in all facets of the gallery’s operations. Created through a generous gift from the Allcott family, the Gallery is named for former Art Department Chair, John Allcott, and his wife, artist June Allcott. Find more information about current exhibitions on our Events Page.
