The Visiting Artist Program has been a vital component of the Department of Art and Art History since 1972 and is one of the oldest programs of its kind. Each year, a diverse group of 8-10 nationally and internationally recognized artists are invited to CU to present their work and ideas to a large audience of students, faculty, and community members. During their stay, artists present a public lecture; join the faculty-led Visiting Artist Seminar to work closely with graduate and advanced undergraduate students; meet with students for individual critiques; and contribute to the program’s long-running What Follows professionally produced artist interview series.

Students and faculty are able to access lectures that occured this academic year online.

We would like to thank our students for making this program possible with funding from Art and Art History Student Activities Fees. Additional funding for special guests generously supported by the Roser’s.

Visiting Artist DVDs
The VRC maintains a collection of DVDs from the department’s Visiting Artist Program, available for 3 business-day checkout to faculty and students within the Department of Art and Art History (undergraduate students must present their Buff OneCards). These include the artists’ public lectures and the What Follows… interviews series. The VRC also provides access to recent Visiting Artist videos through its database. See the VRC video page for more information about the DVDs and streaming videos. Note that videos in either format are not available until the semester following an artist’s visit.

We are honored to have had the following visitors participate in our program, the list is long but so is our history: Comprehensive Catalog – Visiting Artists
