Outstanding Art Studio and Art History programs provide a high quality selection of visiting scholars, lecturers and artists-in-residence for students – and USF is no exception. With the combined resources of the School, the Contemporary Art Museum, and the renowned Graphicstudio, we offer one of the most complete, diverse, and ambitious Visiting Artists and Scholars Series in the US.

Plus, our guests don’t just deliver a lecture and jump on a plane and head out of town. They engage in private studio visits, attend seminars, deliver demonstrations, and often hold Friday morning discussions and debates with our students. During recent years, our students have had the good fortune to engage the following – and many more:
