Evening Lecture Series

(Please click here for a printable pdf version of the series)


The New York Studio School's celebrated Evening Lecture Series has served as a vital forum for New York City's arts community for over 35 years. Free and open to the public, the series features talks by both established and emerging artists, critics and scholars and addresses critical issues in the visual arts. Tuesday evenings normally feature artists speaking on their work or on related issues, Wednesdays showcase historians, writers and critics presenting on a range of art-realted topics.


The Evening Lecture Series is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and by a grant from the Cultural Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. The series is also supported through the generosity of the Charles Engelhard Foundation and the Leon Lowenstain Foundation. The New York Studio School would like to thank all of its supporters.
