Lilias Trotter Symposium

If you are interested in art, history, missions, or vocation, you won’t want to miss the Lilias Trotter Symposium!

Thursday, Sept 15
Barrows Auditorium, Wheaton College

Lilias Trotter (1853–1928) was a gifted painter whose art drew high praise from John Ruskin but who went on to spend most of her life in obscurity as a missionary in Algeria. Join us for an afternoon and evening to see some of her original watercolors, hear from her biographer and filmmaker, and watch the documentary film. A panel discussion will explore the theme of vocation as it relates to Trotter’s life and ours.

Afternoon sessions begin 2:30 pm, film begins at 7 pm.
