UNCG’s Greensboro Project Space is in a new location, at 111 E. February One Place in downtown Greensboro, and will host dynamic exhibitions through the fall.

At the new space, safe policies are in place in accordance with UNCG event policies and North Carolina’s Phase 3. A maximum of 17 guests are allowed in the gallery, and masks and social distancing are required at all times. RSVPs are required during the limited-capacity evening programs but not during regular gallery hours. RSVP information for specific programs can be found on each project’s web page at greensboroprojectspace.com. Hand sanitizer is provided throughout the gallery, and there are separate entrances and exits. Instructions will be noted inside the gallery as well.

“It has been wonderful to see students using Greensboro Project Space again, albeit with a handful of COVID19 policies put in place to keep everyone safe,” says GPS Director Adam Carlin. “There is such a need, especially right now, for UNCG students to have a public platform in which to creatively respond to what is happening in the world. GPS was always meant to be a bridge between the arts at UNCG and the community, and I cannot think of a more crucial time in which to maintain this bridge.”
