The Scarab Club will be hosting an exhibition honoring Robert Wilbert, Professor Emeritus, Wayne State University. The exhibition will include a limited number of portraits by Wilbert, as well as works by former students.

Few individuals in our community are held in so high regard as Wilbert, as both an artist and educator. In nearly forty years at Wayne he influenced countless artists who have gone on to establish their own careers in this area and beyond. His impact as an artist, teacher, mentor and friend continues to be an important factor in the community today.

In recognition of Wilbert’s significant and lasting contributions to the arts community the Scarab Club is honored to invite him to add his name to its historic beams.
