Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University
Eleanor D. Wilson Museum

The Eleanor D. Wilson Museum is a premiere arts destination in the Roanoke Valley, featuring the work of internationally renowned artists as well as emerging and regional artists. The museum also presents work from Hollins' permanent collection and mounts exhibitions that explore currents in contemporary art. The museum provides a place to look at art and to talk about it, enhancing both the life of the university and the community beyond.

Located on the first floor of the Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center, the museum is a state-of-the-art climate-controlled facility. The museum has three interconnected galleries of different sizes, totaling approximately 4,000 square feet of exhibition space. Through the generosity of a grant from Roanoke County, the museum now houses a dedicated permanent Collection and Educational Resource Center, which is available to students, teachers, and other patrons who are interested in furthering their study of art in the museum's permanent collection. It also functions as a small educational center for groups and classes, providing a forum for discussion, workshops, and projects based on exhibitions.
