Visiting Artist/Scholar Series

The Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture series has brought 80 distinguished guests to the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia since 2002. Visiting Artists and Scholars spend three days on campus interacting with students and faculty, the culmination of which is a public lecture on the subject of the artist’s or scholar’s work.

resonance01_300_396auto_s.jpgAn integral part of undergraduate and graduate education at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, the Visiting Artist and Scholar program is an invaluable resource for both students and faculty, and is responsible for recruiting some of the most recognizable names in art world today.  Individual areas also bring additional visiting artists and scholars to campus each year.
