Art Colloquium Events

Art students have opportunities to attend workshops and lectures throughout the year. Led by visiting scholars and faculty, these workshops prepare our students for post-graduation success. Given our COVID reality, we have expanded our Colloquia offering to include asynchronous professional development opportunities and virtual artists talks. To receive credit, please email Dr. Kate a 100-200 word synopsis of the talk, video, or experience.

All art majors must attend 12 colloquia during their time at Luther to complete the requirements of the art major.
