Lectures presented by resident and visiting faculty have been an essential element of Skowhegan's campus program since its inception in 1946. Beginning in 1952, the lectures have been recorded and collected for the Skowhegan Lecture Archive, which now contains over 650 lectures delivered by faculty artists in the uniquely intimate setting of our campus in rural Maine. The lectures have amassed into an invaluable collection of candid talks by artists as diverse as Vito Acconci, Janine Antoni, John Cage and Merce Cunningham, Kiki Smith, Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch, and Fred Wilson. The archive continues to grow each summer.
