John and Anne Wilson Hall, named for former Washington and Lee president John D. Wilson and his wife Anne, is the most recent gem in the University's crown of the arts. Housing the departments of Music and Art, Wilson Hall also contains a 300-seat state of the art Concert Hall which plays host not only to the University's many student, faculty, and ensemble groups, but also world renowned concert artists. The Staniar Art Gallery is also an excellent venue for the works of student, faculty and professional artists.
