Designed to inspire and inform the creative process, the Visiting Artists Series invites contemporary artists into our classrooms and community to share their work, inspirations, and paths to success. In turn, students develop a healthy appreciation and understanding of diverse art and culture that sparks dialogue and informs the creative process.
Visiting artists work across disciplines and range from world-renowned speakers to highly-regarded local career professionals. Through readings, lectures, screenings, performances, workshops, critiques, and conversations, visiting artists serve as role models and mentors by working with students and showcasing the determination, grit, and discipline necessary to create art in any media.
From time to time, visiting artists are invited to showcase their work or share their stories with our broader community. Many of the visiting artists are RCS alum.
