Also known as ART220 Professional Lecture Series
Each year, the Art Department hosts the Visual Voices Lecture Series, bringing distinguished artists, designers, and critics to campus. All lectures are free and open to the public. The Visual Voices Lecture Series forms a vital link that connects the Bradley community with regional, national and global perspectives on art. The visiting speakers inspire Fine Art students by sharing their own creative research and other experience that is relevant to building a career in the field.
