Since 1972, the Visiting Artist Program has been bringing established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to art students. Hosted by the Department of Art and Art History, the program enriches academic programs and outreach to the wider community by providing a diverse mix of culture, style, focus and expertise from artists of national and international status.
Each semester, four to five contemporary artists from around the world are brought to the campus to teach a seminar class and present a lecture that outlines art works, installations or multi-media performances. The lectures are free and open to the public.
Artists working in a variety of media whose works reflect the best of what is happening in contemporary art are chosen by the program’s committee. “The Visiting Artist Program invites artists we really wouldn‘t have access to here in Colorado,” said Valerie Albicker, program director. “The overall goal is for students and the community to interact with working artists who have strong conceptual work.”
The professional artists also critique students enrolled in the Visiting Artist Seminar Class thereby giving students a different perspective of the interplay between concept, material and context as it relates to their current work, while encouraging diverse artistic potential.
