About the Summer Program:

Resident ceramics faculty/critics have come from top programs nationally this year including VCU, RISD, MICA,
University of Tennessee, KCAI, Syracuse and others. Collectively their work has been presented in dozens of major galleries and museums internationally.

Student residents are selected from art programs nationally and internationally. They are extraordinarily motivated and committed to their work. Studios are open 24/7.

Every summer 10 contemporary exhibitions are presented in the seven museum quality galleries of the Strohl and Fowler-Kellogg Art Centers and the Melvin Johnson Sculpture Garden. A professional symphony performs three nights each week in their 5,000 seat amphitheater. There are also nightly performances with popular entertainers and guest artists, and the historic Chautauqua lecture series, often broadcast nationally on NPR, takes place every morning. All of this and more is provided free of charge to School of Art participants.

The VACI Visual Arts lecture series offers twice weekly lectures by outstanding artists and other professionals in the field.
