Visiting Artist Lecture Series

No events scheduled at this time.

Each semester the Student Art Alliance invites artists, historians, critics and curators to give presentations on their work or on current issues in contemporary culture. The Visiting Artist Lecture Series offers unique opportunities to explore and discuss contemporary creative practices. More than 200 internationally recognized artists and designers representing the range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary interests of the region have participated to date.

This series has become the flagship of the Student Art Alliance, an entirely student-run organization that for years has supported and enhanced opportunities for campus community members to view fine art and gain insights into the process of working art professionals.

The lecture series is funded by the SUNY New Paltz Student Association and administered by the Student Art Alliance. For additional information email artlectures@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu.
