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.
