Access & Use

Objects from the Permanent Collection are used in a number of ways to support the education of Wheaton students and faculty research, and to enhance the campus environment.

  • Students in ARTH 111: Arts of the Western Tradition completed a formal analysis assignment using objects in the collection as a means of developing their visual literacy.
  • Since the Fall 2013 semester, students enrolled in Professor Leah Niederstadt's courses have conducted provenance research on collection objects. Many of their findings have been published in the Collection Highlights section of this website.
  • In Spring 2013, students enrolled in Professor Claudia Fieo's course Special Topics in Printmaking created monotypes using tracings they made of archival and collection objects displayed in the student-curated exhibition 100 Years, 100 Objects. Two of the monotypes created by Christina Cannon, Class of 2013, have since been donated to the collection.
