The Walford Galleries support the educational mission of the Art Department and function as its primary exhibition site serving Wheaton College students. The Gallery exhibition program and related colloquia are academic in nature, and informed by the Christian liberal arts identity of the College. Exhibitions explore diverse aspects of contemporary art dialogue and present artistic works that strive to celebrate and investigate: beauty, appropriate craftsmanship, the significance of artistic paradigms, the redemptive potential of visual images, the power of art to shape community, and individual creative expression.
The Walford Galleries are on the first floor of Adams Hall located near the center of campus east of the intersection of Washington Street and East Franklin Street and directly north of Blanchard Hall. Visitor parking is available along Washington Street and in the lot behind Edman Chapel. Please refer to the campus map here.
The Walford Galleries are open to the public Monday through Friday, 9am to 4:30pm.
