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.

Into the Image

Collectability, demonstration of artistic virtuosity, and intimacy between spectator and object all imbue the miniature with certain charms. This exhibition of miniature artworks—drawn entirely from the Davison Art Center collection—features objects made across several centuries, and includes examples by Rembrandt van Rijn and Henri Matisse.
