Learning Live in the WCU Fine Art Museum


We’re honored to be a site for personal discovery, a space to feed your artistic curiosity, and a gathering place for our campus and community. 

Under the leadership of Chancellor David O. Belcher (2011-2018), Western Carolina University experienced phenomenal success. He propelled this institution and our students toward greatness. Now, we must continue the progress he put in motion. We must be champions for our students, believe in their possibilities, inspire their determination, knock down obstacles in their way and lead them toward a better future.

Join us in a campaign inspired by our greatest champion. Lead the Way.
