The Visiting Scholar Program is organized to explore the discipline of art history—its cultural connections, its methodological pursuits, and its changing nature—by focusing extensively on the research and insights of individual academic experts. Three to five highly regarded art historians and/or art critics present their current research and published papers all students and the public. During their visit guests work closely with graduate students enrolled in seminar classes.
