The Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery opened in February 2013. The Department of Art and Design anticipates that the gallery will support programming including, but not limited to: Lewis University student shows, local and regional artists shows, an annual high school show, faculty shows, academic based exhibitions, and cultural and religious based art shows. Collaborations with music and other academic departments will also be a part of the gallery programming. We are extremely excited for this opportunity and hope you take advantage of this unique experience.

All events are free and open to the public. Dates are subject to change.
