Joel Sheesley Collection

In 2017 the President’s Art Commission purchased fifteen paintings from emeritus professor of art Joel Sheesley. These paintings span over thirty years of his career, and together illustrate his artistic journey, his connection to the area, and his commitment to integrate faith and practice. In celebration of his many contributions to Wheaton college, and to his ongoing artistic practice, the President’s Art Commission is working to display the paintings widely in various locations on campus over the next three years.
