Did you know Wilson College is home to two art galleries?
From now until October 15, 2023, the Bogigian Gallery features a collaboration with artists from The Foundry, a community organization for creatives that fosters, encourages, and celebrates the diverse talents within the Cumberland Valley. This partnership provides opportunities for exhibition exchanges. Foundry artists exhibit their artwork at the College each fall, and Wilson students and faculty have the chance to exhibit at The Foundry in downtown Chambersburg each spring.
