Visiting Artist Programs

The School of Art + Design sponsors two formal programs to bring well-known and cutting-edge artists to campus:

  • Visiting Artist Lecture Series
  • Artist-In-Residence Program

Visiting Artist Speakers

Students and community members can attend lectures and presentations each semester by professional artists who are nationally and internationally known and who work in a variety of media. Additionally, many visiting artists participate in student critiques and studio visits.
