Illinois State University’s Wonsook Kim School of Art is honored to annually host the Visiting Artist Lecture Series. This series provides near weekly opportunities to learn from talented artists from all around the globe. Previously, these lectures were held in University Galleries in Uptown Normal. Due to current circumstances, the Spring 2021 iteration of the Visiting Artist Series will occur entirely on Zoom. This event series is free and open to the public.
