Curating a custom collection

Art is not about what you see, but about what you make others see. - Edgar Degas

We are proud of our art collection, carefully curated from the work of Waubonsee students and the artists who visit our college. The collection is publicly exhibited across our campus locations, allowing our community to see what our artists see and enriching their lives through art.

Ceramics Club Collection

Since the spring of 1999, Waubonsee's Ceramics Club has actively collected ceramic art produced by visiting ceramic artists. The pieces are displayed throughout the Sugar Grove campus and serve as a valuable educational resource to the program.
