My Secret Double is an international exhibition that strives to address issues of mental health with a message of hope. The "secret double" is that inner voice that speaks fear and insecurity driving many to depression, anxiety, and darkness. From March 7 to May 6, 2022, Wheaton College will host this exhibit that showcases artwork that expresses artists' personal journeys with that secret voice, and also ways in which hope may be found in the midst of that journey.

About the Events

The Year of the Arts will showcase Wheaton faculty, students, alumni, and many guest artists.  Scripture describes God as Creator, Author, Sculptor, Gardener, Craftsman, Designer, and so much more. As God’s image-bearers we are offered sacred opportunities to reflect His attributes, as He inspires us to create and explore. May we each be drawn closer to our Creator, to our own creativity, and to an emboldened sense of how each person might be best equipped to serve Christ and His Kingdom.
