About The Galleries
The Beard and Weil Galleries are a vital part of Wheaton’s creative and intellectual life. Exhibitions feature work by contemporary artists in all media, as well as works from Wheaton’s extensive Permanent Collection, 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.
Photography Beyond The Frame and its corresponding events have been made possible by the generous support of the Wheaton College Friends Of Art. The participation of Dimitra Ermeidou was made possible by the Celeste Gottesman Bartos ’35 Fund For the Visual Arts within the Evelyn Danzig Haas ’39 Visiting Artists Program.
