The Eleanor D. Wilson Museum houses a diverse collection of artwork by well-known artists working in a variety of media. Paintings, photographs, and works on paper acquired by generations of Hollins University art professors and alumnae form the basis of our collection. Now, the museum actively collects work by internationally recognized artists working today. With more than 1000 art objects and a growing archive, the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum’s collection is an important cultural and educational resource for the university and the greater southwestern Virginia community.
