Behind the Scenes: Collection Move


The Gaston County Museum of Art and History is moving its collection, and we want to take you along for the ride! Over the last 40 years, the museum’s collection has grown to include over 10,000 objects and 15,000 archival materials. In order to meet the needs of our community, the museum’s collection will be moving to a new storage location in Dallas this summer, 2021.

To document this experience, the Museum has started a new project called Behind the Scenes: Collection Move, where we will share every step of the moving process, from planning to transportation.

Join us on Facebook or on our website for bi-weekly updates!


Collecting In Crisis

The Covid-19 pandemic and the civil rights crisis here in America have taken the world by storm. As our lives shift, the Gaston County Museum of Art and History would like to document these moments in history, and we are asking the people of Gaston County to help us by sharing their experiences.
