Art and Campus

The arts are an essential and vibrant part of Wake Forest’s campus.  There are a number of important visual art collections on campus, and if you aren’t on campus to be able to see some of these pieces, fear not: they are also online.

Student Union Collection – since 1963, every four years a group of students is charged with purchasing artwork for the University; these are their selections

Student Art Collection – featuring works by WFU art majors and minors

Simmons Collection – in 1941 at graduation, Thomas Simmons donated his extensive collection of 19th and 20th century art

Middleton Collection – featuring works bequeathed to the University by the late Phil Hanes and his wife, Charlotte

RJ Reynolds – this is the donated corporate collection of RJ Reynolds

And there are other collections too – visit the University Art Collection page to see more.
