Visiting Artist Lecture Series

Each semester, weekly visiting artist lectures host noted artists, curators, critics, and historians to share their perspectives, expertise, and current work, and to give insight into contemporary issues facing artists and designers.


The School of Art+Design and the Digital Collections Center at Purchase College Library has digitally archived a selection of the artist lectures from 2012 to present available through Artstor. The archive is for academic use only. To access the archive you must be on campus at Purchase College.
