The Davison Art Center (DAC) holds Wesleyan’s collection of more than 25,000 works of art on paper, chiefly prints and photographs. The print collection is among the finest at any U.S. university. The collection supports teaching and learning from objects in many ways, and the DAC gallery presents public exhibitions during the academic year.
Thursday January 2, 2020 – Monday January 2, 2023
The Davison Art Center gallery is currently closed as staff are engaged in moving the collection to new facilities and in planning a new gallery.
