Artists representing some of the most innovative and influential work being done today come to lecture at the University of Oregon. The Department of Art brings in about a dozen artists and critics each year from across the nation and abroad to lecture and meet with students in small groups or individual studio visits. In addition to the support each media area has for such an enterprise, the two annual endowed lectures, the George & Matilde Fowler lecture and the Davis Family Lecture, bring in particularly high-profile artists and critics who challenge our assumptions about art and have broad relevance across media. These public lectures provide not only a unique opportunity to hear directly from artists about their work, but also for students to work with them directly in a more intimate capacity.
