Watkins College of Art, Design & Film will bring four renowned artists to campus during the 2012-13 academic year for the Watkins Visiting Artists Series. Video and performance artist Liz Magic Laser, illustrator/animator Chris Sickels, social practice artist Harrell Fletcher and photographer Deborah Luster are scheduled for this series of lectures, which are free and open to the public.
The guest artists, whose work crosses many disciplinary boundaries, will give public presentations, sharing their expertise and perspectives on their careers and providing insight into current issues facing contemporary artists and designers, as well as meet with relevant classes in which they will conduct a workshop and/or critique student work.
The Watkins Visiting Artists Series is an annual program which welcomes nationally and internationally recognized fine artists, designers, filmmakers, educators and critics to the campus and the community. Through the generous support of the Memorial Foundation, this year’s series builds upon last year’s SRO series of lectures in the Watkins Theater plus an exhibition in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery.
