Visiting Artists

To enrich and enliven the student experience, the School of Visual Arts invites to campus artists and critics of national and international reputation whose interests cross disciplines. These luminaries interact closely with students in various ways, from delivering talks to giving individual critiques. The Contemporary Perspectives Lecture Series and the Tim Hamill Visiting Artist Lecture present noted painters, sculptors, printmakers, graphic artists, art educators, filmmakers, and art critics to campus for lectures as well as studio visits.
