Len G. Everett Galleries

Len G. Everett Galleries Room 203In addition to its print and online collections, Hewes Library is also home to unique and ever-changing art displays and exhibitions. Len G. Everett Galleries, located on the Upper Level, consist of two galleries, clearly visible from the stairs and the elevator.

In Gallery 203, Monmouth College is the proud caretaker of a distinguished collection of art and antiquities. Our Permanent Collection includes bequests of works of antiquity from the personal collection of James Christie Shields (Class of 1949), traditional woodblock prints from Takashi Komatsu (Class of 1910), works of printmaking from the Carnegie Print Collection, contemporary Japanese prints and paintings from Dorothy and James Schramm, and artwork primarily of the Pacific from W. Stewart Riley (Class of 1945). Selected works from the Permanent Collection are put on display in Gallery 203 as well as in several display cases throughout Hewes Library. A selection of permanent items on display in Hewes Library can be viewed on Art and Architecture in Illinois Libraries website.

Gallery 204 is the larger of the two galleries, making it an appropriate site for the parade of varied and far-ranging exhibitions that visit it throughout the academic year. It showcases not only student artwork, but also exhibitions of regional and national artists. Inquiries regarding the galleries should be directed to the Monmouth College Art Department at 309-457-2108.
