The FedEx Global Education Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill hosts art exhibitions that promote intellectual discussion and a better understanding and appreciation for other cultures and world regions. Each semester, UNC Global features the works of global artists in exhibitions that touch on a variety of themes and topics. The exhibitions offer perspectives from a range of places, histories and peoples, but convey themes that are universal. Artwork is displayed from the first to the third floor of the FedEx Global Education Center to inspire the Carolina community and further infuse a global dimension throughout the University’s teaching and research. Typically, exhibitions are accompanied by related lectures and other programming.
The gallery space within the center is housed on three floors and contains approximately 14 linear feet on each of the five walls in the space. This includes one wall on the first floor and two walls on the second and third floors. Most exhibitions should use all three floors of the gallery space, but exhibitors may share gallery space on some occasions.
Glass display cases (approximately 11.5’W x 8.5’H x 18”D) containing maple pedestals (14” squared, with 3 in each height: 2’, 3’, and 4’) in the center’s atrium may also be used to highlight three-dimensional work.
Some works of art may be covered by the University’s fine arts policy and insurance, but the FedEx Global Education Center cannot be responsible for the security of artwork. Security personnel are on-site during evenings and weekends.
