A Student-Centered Museum

Students studying Suzanne Duchamp drawing. In 1894 the Wright Museum of Art was established as a teaching museum. Continuing in that tradition, we believe that students learn by doing.

In our galleries…

Beloit College students assist in curating many of our exhibits. Students engage in background research and help write the wall texts. They also help design the exhibit layout, frame and hang the artwork, and create marketing and educational materials.

..and behind the scenes.

Beloit College students assist museum staff with caring for the works of art. Responsibilities entrusted to students include: inventory, collections research, mount making, and photography.

Wright Museum access

The museum is open to Beloit College students, faculty, and staff Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., or before 11 a.m. by appointment. Non-campus visitors should contact museum staff for visit inquiries.
