In response to the ongoing impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Wheaton College has altered its operations. More information about our return to campus is available here.
As a result, ALL arts events for fall 2020 will be virtual. Virtual events are open to the public free of charge. Registration links will be available on the College Event Calendar and on the Watson Box Office website as they become available.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate this global challenge and we look forward to welcoming you back to campus when we are able to resume normal operations.
Arts at Wheaton supports the performing, visual and cultural arts at Wheaton. We present programming in conjunction with the departments of Music, Theatre & Dance and Visual Art & History of Art as well as the programs in Creative Writing and Film & New Media Studies. Through the Evelyn Danzig Haas ’39 Visiting Artists Program, we also bring artists from a variety of disciplines to campus to perform, teach and offer workshops for students and the wider community.
Our events are open to the public and can be found on the college calendar.
The majority of our events are free, for those requiring tickets, online purchasing is available online through the Watson Box Office.
