This fall, students will have the opportunity to interact with top professionals in the world of art and design as “Visual Voices,” a lecture series offered by the Department of Art and Visual Technology (AVT), welcomes eight nationally recognized visiting artists, designers and experts to the Fairfax Campus.

Not only will the artists speak about their work, but in some instances will offer students a chance to look inside their studios and join them during daytime seminars and studio visits.

“Visual Voices” is sponsored by the College of Visual and Performing Arts, AVT Friends of Art, New Century College and the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies.

The lectures are free and open to the public. All talks will be given in Harris Theater on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9 p.m. The schedule of events is listed below.
