Visiting Artists

Visiting artists of diverse backgrounds frequently join the MassArt community for a few days, weeks, or months. Through lectures, slide talks, gallery walkthroughs, symposia, and residencies, these artists share their perspectives on practicing their chosen craft.

Visits often coincide with exhibitions of artists' work, granting MassArt students the unique opportunity to participate in mounting professional installations. While some visits are intimately tied to curricula, others are designed to fill a gap or broaden the student experience.
