Art historian to present next visiting artist lecture Nov. 8
The School of Art, Art History and Design’s Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series continues with art historian Bonna Wescoat at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 8 in Richards Hall, Room 15.
The series brings notable artists, scholars and designers to Nebraska each semester to enhance the education of students. Each lecture is free and open to the public
Wescoat is the Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Art History at Emory University. Her research interests are ancient Greek art and architecture, particularly sacred architecture, and digital modeling to investigate the interaction of landscape, architecture and ritual experience.
In addition to her monograph, “The Temple of Athena at Assos,” she has recently completed “Samothrace vol. 9, Monuments of the Eastern Hill.” Her work now centers on the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace, where she has directed excavations.
The remaining lecture in the series this fall is Nov. 14 with ceramicists Linda Lopez and Cristina Córdova.
The visiting artist or scholar spends one to three days on campus to meet with classes, participate in critiques and give demonstrations.
