Look close, think far: A conversation with Ackland Museum Director Katie Ziglar 

Did you know that the Ackland has 19,000 works of art that span time and culture?  That it’s an excellent place to entertain out-of-town guests?  That it not only nourishes UNC classes but serves the broader community by hosting thousands of K-12 students and teachers every year?  That you can do yoga in the galleries?

Learn about the Ackland’s beginnings, collection highlights, and exciting plans – and as an added treat, Katie will give us tips on looking at art.  A museum professional with 31 years’ experience, Katie Ziglar came to the Ackland in 2016 following 13 years at the Smithsonian.  She has Increased national and international visibility of five art museums in the US.  Among her goals at the Ackland is improving the museum’s relevance and visibility in the community and wider region.
