ART VOICES

The Art Voices Lecture Series is a part of the Education and Community Programs Department. This series creates a platform for the voices of artists, art scholars, critics, museum professionals, and historians. Art Voices aspires to be a catalyst for interdisciplinary learning through talks to encourage discourse and curiosity about all facets of Latin American and Latino Studies. Q&A will follow each discussion.

Art Voices will be held on selected 3rd Thursday’s of each month from 6–7PM. Each lecture is 45 minutes in duration with 10 minutes devoted to Q&A, followed by a light reception.
