Visiting Artist and Scholar Program

An important component of a quality visual arts program is providing students the opportunity to interact with visiting artists and scholars from a wide range of backgrounds and expertise.

The Visiting Artist and Scholar Program (VASP), created in 1994, brings nationally and internationally acclaimed artists and scholars to campus annually. Residencies vary from a few days to one week and may include a formal lecture, workshop and classroom/studio visits with students.

Visiting artists are also brought to campus through the efforts of individual faculty and students in various areas, including Art Metals, Ceramics, Graphic Design and Printmaking.
