Our unique Visiting Artist and Scholar Residency Program provide residencies to diverse, outstanding studio artists, art historians, art critics, and curators. Our residents lead workshops or teach special courses related to their disciplines, as well as giving public lectures on their work. Our students benefit from the synergy between our faculty, community, resident artists and scholars, and a multitude of performance, visual art, music, and lecture presentations annually offered within the College of the Arts.
