Skowhegan Lecture Archive

Artstor Alumni Beta Test // Spring 2019


The complete Skowhegan Lecture Archive is now accessible online to alumni and faculty.

Skowhegan is thrilled to welcome alumni and faculty to listen to the complete Lecture Archive online.

You may have listened to the lectures on reel-to-reels, cassettes, CDs or an iPod, and we envision the collection’s transition online as the latest step in preservation and accessibility. Whether you’ve been thinking about one particular artist’s talk since you left, or you didn’t have the chance to listen to any while on campus, we hope the collection’s digital format will allow you to develop new connections to this unique material.

Skowhegan would like to invite you to a “beta test” of the Lecture Archive before we share the collection with select outside institutions this fall. This entails simply listening to lectures from past Skowhegan faculty on the Artstor platform and answering a brief, optional survey about your experience.

The online archive features only lectures from artists who have given explicit permission to host their talks in this format. If a lecture is missing, it is either because they denied online hosting, or because we have not yet gotten an affirmative response.

Please note that the Skowhegan Lecture Archive is still a closed collection; you may not share access with anyone. Furthermore, the copyright of each lecture belongs to the lecturing artist or estate, so you may not reproduce or cite any part of anything contained in the archive without first contacting Skowhegan.
