About the Galleries
The Beard and Weil Galleries are a vital part of Wheaton’s creative and intellectual life. Our dynamic programming features work by contemporary artists in all media, and innovative exhibitions drawn from Wheaton’s extensive Permanent Collections, spanning Ancient Greece to contemporary South Africa.
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.
Programming enhances our curriculum in studio art, art history, and museum studies. In addition, a wide range of disciplines across campus, such as Classics, Mathematics and Chemistry, have used the Galleries’ resources and exhibitions to enhance Wheaton’s connected course of studies. 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 Studio Art Major exhibition.
