Lectures & Studio Visits
Resident Faculty Artists live on campus for the entire session and lecture on their work. Each Resident Faculty Artist meets individually with each participant during the summer, participate fully in the life of campus, and work alongside participants in their own studios. Visiting Faculty Artists come to Skowhegan for two to three days to lecture and provide critiques. Each participant meets with one Visiting Faculty Artist during the session. In addition to Resident and Visiting Artists, Skowhegan invites an individual who brings a perspective from outside the practice of visual arts to deliver the annual Paul Mellon Lecture. Poets, architects, philosophers, journalists, curators, historians, and choreographers have delivered the lecture over the years.
