Art Galleries


One of Wesleyan’s premier attractions for students and the community is our extensive collection of fine paintings, prints, furniture, and objects – donated over the years by alumnae, foundations, and friends. Among the most impressive in Georgia, these Wesleyan Treasures tell a compelling story about our history. We feel privileged to steward these unique resources and are delighted to share them with the community and with visiting scholars and guests in our galleries and in academic and administrative buildings across campus. Our three campus art galleries are venues for exhibitions of student work, of our permanent collection, and of invited artists.
