Arts at UNCW


Black students, scholars, and leaders have made significant contributions to UNCW and our surrounding community. To celebrate the courage and tenacity of those who led the charge towards their right to higher education, the Office of the Arts has created a revolving exhibit that highlights the trailblazers of the past and present, and exposes the challenges they overcame—many of which still exist today. The UNCW Office of the Arts stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

This exhibit runs on Exhibbit, a virtual gallery platform. It is accessible on desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad, and on Android phones and tablets. In order to run Exhibbit on mobile devices, you must install the Exhibbit App (Download: App Store, Google Play).
