Eleanor D. Wilson Museum

Dear guests, patrons, and friends
of the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum,

Not a snowflake in sight, but the semester began with a flurry of activity!

The exhibit titled A Marriage of Art and Math: Artwork Inspired by Dual Platonic Solids, on view through April 23, was installed January 26 with the assistance of our J-term intern, Eva Greene (image above left). In February, museum staff installed the exhibit titled Andrea Sulzer: here with you, on view through April 23, featuring artwork by Hollins’ 2023 Frances Niederer Artist-in-Residence (image above center). Our third changeover in two months is the installation of the exhibition titled Suzanne Schireson: Aftercare, and the accompanying “Makeshift MakerSpace.” Aftercare opened March 9, and while visiting Roanoke for a lecture and opening reception, the artist spent time with a number of art classes and provided students with a gallery walk-through of the exhibit (image above right).

Upcoming programs:
Wednesday, March 29, 6pm with reception to follow: Conversation with Artist Mark Reynolds and Mathematician Dr. Stephen Wassell. This program is in conjunction with the exhibition A Marriage of Art and Math: Artwork Inspired by Dual Platonic Solids and is sponsored in part by the city of Roanoke through the Roanoke Arts Commission.
Thursday, May 4, 5pm with reception to follow: Opening Reception for 2023 Senior Art Majors Exhibition.
