The Asheville Art Museum is undergoing a historic transformation, with major construction about to begin on the new facility, which is scheduled to open in 2018. The Museum's 2 South Pack Square location will temporarily close beginning October 31 to allow for the construction and to keep the Museum’s Permanent Collection safe and secure.

In December, the Museum is excited to be opening Asheville Art Museum On the Slope, a small pop-up Museum at 175 Biltmore Avenue (the old Foam & Fabric building), which will house a gift shop, a rotating intimate exhibition gallery and an education studio. It will also serve as the temporary offices for Museum staff.

As the Museum begins this time of transition, it will continue an active schedule of programming for all ages off-site with community partners across WNC. The Museum is pleased to be working with a few organizations that will store its Permanent Collection in secure and climate-controlled environments. In addition, the Museum is collaborating with a number of community partners such as Western Carolina University, the State Employees’ Credit Union and Wells Fargo to present works on view to the public during the construction phase. Programs for children will continue at local public libraries, as well as On the Slope.
