The Gregg Museum of Art & Design is the collecting art museum of NC State University. It is one of the six primary units of Arts NC State within the Division of Academic and Student Affairs. Its holdings reflect the wide-ranging curricula of the university, with a permanent collection of more than 35,000 objects including crafts, applied and decorative arts, industrial design, architectural drawings and works on paper, photography, ceramics, paintings, sculptures, textiles, clothing, furniture, archaeological artifacts, tribal and ethnographic objects, and works by self-taught artists.

In addition to maintaining and making available this major resource for the purpose of research and teaching, the museum presents six to eight exhibitions each year accompanied by exciting performances, activities, and educational programs, all of which are free and accessible to students and the public alike. The Gregg reopened its current location in August 2017; although the museum has existed and evolved since the early 1970s, it is (once more) a new cultural destination with a prominent location in the vibrant and growing city of Raleigh, focused on re-establishing and expanding its annual attendance.
