The Susan Paul Firestone Lecture Series in Contemporary Art

The Susan Paul Firestone Lecture Series in Contemporary Art brings noteworthy visual artists and art critics to campus. The three-day residency of the artist or critic includes a public lecture and close interaction with art students through class discussions and critiques. This lecture series was initiated through the generosity of Ray A. Graham III and it honors the creative work and accomplishments of Susan Paul Firestone ’68.
