The Visiting Artist Lecture Series, presented by the Department of Art and the Center for Art Research, introduces students and the community-at-large to a broad range of international interdisciplinary practitioners including artists, curators, critics, designers, and historians. The department is committed to inviting innovative and prominent professionals to speak about their influences and processes within their current practice as part of the public lecture series and also to engage with students in small groups or individual studio critiques.
