The Department of Art presents the Visiting Artist Lecture Series (VALS). The annual series, organized by graduate students in Art, invites artists, scholars, curators, critics, gallerists and writers to give public lectures and conduct studio visits with students relevant to graduate students' research and practice. The series is presented in a colloquium setting (this year via Zoom), where students engage in in-depth discussions with the visiting artists and scholars.
VALS is presented with generous support from The Claire Trevor Society, the CTSA Dean's Fund for Excellence and UCI Illuminations.
