Visiting Artists & Scholars

Seeing and experiencing art and design work gives us insight to the minds of the people who make it. Hearing stories about what led to its creation and learning about the motivations and impulses behind it give us a greater appreciation of the work.

Exchanging ideas is such an important part of art, design and life itself that we strive to bring people who practice and study these fields to our campus so that we can hear them talk about their work. We are often inspired by what we hear and, if we’re lucky, we make connections to our work, too. Finding and making connections between people, ideas and form is what makes this such an exciting place to learn, work and study.
