Working with the foundation, the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum joins Roanoke College, Radford University, the Taubman Museum of Art, Birmingham-Southern College, the University of Central Florida, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, and others across the nation in exhibiting Gillespie’s artwork in conjunction with this milestone.
