TRAVELING TRUNKS

No time to make a visit to our gallery? We can bring art to you. Our traveling trunks give kids a first-hand look at art created by North Carolina artists and do something they don't get to do in a traditional gallery or museum - TOUCH!

By hosting one of our extraordinary Traveling Trunks, you'll receive all the benefits of a rewarding trip to a fine museum in your own classroom or media center. Each trunk is presented by a trained GreenHill docent who will lead the students through an examination and discussion of the artwork in each trunk.
