An invaluable resource for University students and the public alike, the mission of the Visiting Artists program is to educate and foster a greater appreciation for contemporary art and culture through a wide range of programming. BFSDoArt organizes formal lectures, gallery talks, studio critiques, and panel discussions that highlight each artist and/or scholar. These programs provide the community with direct access to many nationally and internationally renowned artists and scholars working in various disciplines. The BFSDoArt Visiting Artists Program is supported by the Betty Foy Sanders Visiting Artist Endowment, Campus Life Enrichment Committee (CLEC), Student Activities Funds, and other sources.
