Fine Arts Circle of Honor

The Wesleyan Fine Arts Circle of Honor was created in 2007 to show appreciation to members of the Wesleyan community who have made significant contributions to Wesleyan's Fine Arts programs.
Those chosen for induction into the Fine Arts Circle of Honor have influenced our society in the arts, academics, and service while at Wesleyan and following their graduation.

Nominating Process

Anyone may nominate for the Fine Arts Circle of Honor. The Director, the Assistant Director of Fine Arts, and the Headmaster will review all nominations before they are brought to the committee. All inductees will be notified by the Fine Arts Department of acceptance into the Fine Arts Circle of Honor before a public announcement is made. Names of nominees will not be announced to the public. Potential inductees may be nominated more than one time, and nominations must be submitted by October 6, 2017.
