Emme Ya - Women in WSSU Permanent Collection

We invite you to discover the rich array of exhibitions, programs and services featured on this site. As a growing university with almost 6,000 students, Winston-Salem State University is not only home to a fine department of visual arts and a world-class collection of public art by artists such as John Biggers, Mel Edwards, Beverly Buchanan and Tyrone Mitchell, it is also home to one of the South's leading showcases dedicated to African and African-American art. In fact, in 2007 the gallery was identified as one of the top 10 African American galleries in the nation. We were also identified by the Smithsonian as one of the nation's best regional facilities for exploring contemporary African art.

The gallery offers one of the largest exhibition spaces dedicated to the arts of Africa and the African Diaspora in North Carolina. Exhibitions, publications and programs address a broad range of artistic expression, with special concentration on African-American and regional art.

The mission of The Diggs Gallery is to serve as a cultural meeting place where art can educate and enlighten with the belief that art documents our heritage and brings communities together. It therefore becomes a teaching facility, community center, art gallery and meeting place geared to augment and support academic life on campus.
