Focused on experiential learning, knowledge sharing and cross-disciplinary exchange, PNCA’s Graduate Visiting Artist program is a dynamic and essential part of each graduate program’s curriculum. Throughout the year, artists, scholars, designers, curators and critics from around the globe are invited to engage with students and the community in a variety of formats, including lectures, conversations, panel discussions, group critiques, workshops and studio visits. These visiting artists contribute to, challenge and expand the academic and artistic discourse at PNCA, extending the possibilities for innovative instruction and learning.
