Lecture Series-School of Art - Carnegie Mellon University

Lecture Series

Visiting artists play an important role in our undergraduate and graduate education.  Internationally-recognized artists, critics, and arts professionals from around the world speak as part of the School of Art's Lecture Series each semester. The School of Art also co-presents festivals and symposia shared by the College of Fine Arts at large. 

Students are strongly encouraged to attend these events, and, in some courses, attendance is required. Visiting speakers occasionally meet with MFA candidates for one-on-one studio and class critiques.
