VCUarts Announces Fall Visiting Artists

VCUarts is hosting dozens of artists from across the fine, design and performing arts as visiting artists this fall. These artists come to the classroom for one-on-one discussions with students and faculty, participate in critiques and give public lectures.

“These artists help us push the boundaries of what is known and understood in the arts and design disciplines,” says VCUarts Interim Dean James Frazier, Ed.D. “We’re excited to have these talented artists as a part of our community, to share their experiences and their insights with our students.”

The line-up of visiting artists includes musicians, curators, sound artists, photographers, documentarians, educators, dancers and painters, among others. The current schedule of visiting artist lectures for the spring semester is as follows:
