The Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery

Wadsworth Family Gallery
Mission Statement

The Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery fosters opportunities for patrons to experience original works of visual art created by local, regional, national, and international artists, including members of the Lewis University community. Exhibitions and other programming will promote aesthetic understanding consistent with the mission of Lewis University. We welcome collaborative and interdisciplinary programming that will encourage patronage, and which will enhance our reputation. The primary mission of the gallery is to educate but will also provide additional initiatives in alignment with other well-respected university art galleries.
