The UNLV Checking Out Artist Lecture Series features a varied selection of a few of the most engaging artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This crucial program brings both established and emerging artists to go to the school and discuss their work in public lectures and to use specific reviews to our BFA and MFA trainees. This program has actually developed itself as an important resource for UNLV trainees and the general public alike. The main objective of the UNLV Artist Lecture Series is to educate, motivate and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual discussions and discourse.
This event is free and open to the general public. The suggested voluntary contribution is $5 for grownups and $2 for kids and senior citizens. For more details e-mail the Barrick at [email protected]!.?.! or visit the website.
