OUR MISSION: The Wignall Museum/Gallery is dedicated to presenting innovative exhibitions and programs that reflect the scope and diversity of the art of our time. A vital component of the academic and cultural life of the Chaffey Community College District, the Wignall aspires to engage broad and diverse audiences, create a sense of community, and provide a place for contemplation, stimulation, and discussion of contemporary art and the questions that shape and inspire us as individuals, cultures, and communities.

A SPECIAL NOTE TO CHAFFEY STUDENTS: Each exhibition at the Wignall Museum/Gallery is organized and presented primarily for you. The Wignall is your visual library, where you can see firsthand a variety of contemporary artistic expressions examining timely and relevant topics. For students taking art classes the art works seen at the Wignall may act as a catalyst for your own creative investigations. For those of you studying art history, the Wignall’s exhibitions allow for direct engagement with art objects, enhancing your classroom experience of primarily photographic reproductions of art works. For many Chaffey College students, exhibitions at the Wignall may provide your exciting first encounter with the visual arts. The goal of all of our exhibitions and programs is to enhance the academic experience of all Chaffey students by igniting your imaginations and encouraging critical thinking.

ABOUT US: The Wignall Museum/Gallery was established in 1972. We are located on the main campus of Chaffey College situated in the City of Rancho Cucamonga in Southern California. The Chaffey Community College District serves a population of 650,000 residents of the Inland Valley including the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Fontana, Montclair, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga and Upland.

The Wignall Museum/Gallery presents four to five exhibitions a year. Our exhibition space is approximately 2,500 square feet and is fully equipped with a flexible wall system. Adjoining the gallery building is an enclosed 2,500 square foot patio which provides a venue for outdoor installations, performances and receptions.
