Renovation Project


Imagine... Enriching
Lives Through Art

Quality in a university depends to a great extent upon the contributions it makes to the cultural enrichment of its students. The Diggs Gallery has been an important part of Winston-Salem State University's teaching and service mission since the gallery opened in 1990. Through its display of African and African-American art, the gallery contributes to the cultural life of WSSU students, citizens of the region and visitors to our community.

However, to continue to attract world-class exhibitions and to expand patronage, Diggs Gallery has begun a project to raise $600,000 to renovate the facility that houses its exhibit space, storage space for its collection, and offices. Complete the pledge form (click on the link below) and make your contribution today.
