Gallery Opening & Reception

Curated by students in the new Art History course Exhibition Design, this exhibition focuses on Wheaton’s built environment. Beginning with early images of the college, it explores the history of campus development through architectural models, plans, and sketches as well as maps, documents, and photographs – including a series of black-and-white images by Walker Evans.
