Virtual Visiting Artist Program Schedule

In addition to the many artists we invite to campus through our student organizations we also have an established visiting artist program called the Virtual Visiting Artist Program (VVAP). This program creates access to artists via webcam and provides students access to keep pace with critical thought, contemporary artistic practice, and emerging technology used in cultural production today.
