Art and Design in Greensboro-High Point

The arts industry thrives here, thanks to our creative culture and innovative atmosphere. Historical downtown districts meet modern office spaces and merge into an ideal space for design firms.

Embracing the Arts

The art and design sector in Greensboro-High Point is always growing, changing and adapting to new trends – in addition to a few annual staples like the NC Folk Festival that attract audiences and employ hundreds of residents each year. Many large corporations in the area, such as Kontoor Brands and Qorvo, look to our talented workforce to hire in-house graphic and visual designers.

As a result of High Point’s rich history in textiles and furniture manufacturing, the interior design industry has taken off here, making the city a true design cluster. Locally-owned interior design firms partner with furniture makers to cultivate beautiful homes in the area, and all of these businesses come together each year at the huge High Point Market. High Point is also now home to Plant Seven, a center for design innovation that offers coworking space for independent makers and designers.
