About the Galleries

Through direct engagement with art, the Beard and Weil Galleries aim to foster a greater understanding of our shared world.

The Beard and Weil Galleries are a generative space for art and visual culture that develop knowledge and understanding across disciplines through public exhibitions and programs. The galleries are a hub of innovative research, creativity, and experiential learning that involves and engages the entire Wheaton community as well as the visiting public.

The Beard and Weil Galleries are a vital part of Wheaton’s creative and intellectual life. Our dynamic programming features work by contemporary artists and innovative exhibitions drawn from Wheaton’s Permanent Collections and Archives.

The Galleries’ educational mission encompasses all forms of creative expression in an effort to forge meaningful connections between objects and their histories, student and faculty creative work, art historical research, and critical thinking. The crucial role the visual arts play in a liberal arts education is central to the design and focus of our exhibitions.

Student-curated exhibitions are designed to give hands-on experience in the conception, design, and educational interpretation of exhibitions. Student creative work is featured annually in a Senior Visual Art and Design Majors’ exhibition.

Our exhibitions have been accompanied by a rich series of publications, written and designed by Wheaton students, staff, and faculty.
