Each year professional artists are invited to give lectures at Pratt and conduct studio visits with our graduate students. In addition the VALS program is coordinated by two selected graduate students and over seen by Faculty advisors. The goal for the lectures and studio visits are to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety fields and at various stages in their career.
Pratt Institute's Department of Fine Arts 2015/2016 Visiting Artist Lecture Series was made possible in part by generous grants from The Robert Lehman Foundation and The Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.
