The talk is free and open to the public, and is made possible by The Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund of the Hartford Art School Endowment, Inc. Visiting artists are brought to campus twice each semester for one to two days; during that time they deliver public lectures and spend time in the studios critiquing student work.
