Visiting Artists & Scholars

Visiting Artists and Scholars Fall 2017 / Spring 2018

Washington State University Department of Fine Arts proudly presents Shifting Landscapes: 2017-18 Fine Arts Season.  Each year, the Department of Fine Arts organizes a robust series of visiting artist talks and gallery exhibitions around a common theme.  This year, artists are considering our ever-changing environment.  The idea of Shifting Landscapes is understood broadly, engaging varied academic disciplines and critical contexts such as global climate change, industrial and technological revolutions, politics and culture.  Students, faculty and the public are invited to share in an open-minded dialogue about the world around us sparked by presentations and exhibitions by a diverse range of artists and artist groups including Carlos Castellanos, Signal Fire, Jeffry Mitchell, Mark Dorf, Kim Stringfellow and Wendy Red Star. All events are free to attend, supported by the Forst Fund.
