    Art Talk: Karen Barber, Art Historian

    5:00 pm@Online

    In addition to the many artists the Department of Art & Art History invites to campus through student organizations, they also have an established visiting artist program called Art Talks. This program creates access to artists via webcam and in-person lectures, and it provides students access to keep pace with critical thought, contemporary artistic practice, and emerging technology used in cultural production today.
