The Visiting Artist Program connects Stevenson students to professional visual artists through gallery exhibits and artist presentations (ARTalks). Created over 20 years ago by Stevenson emeritus faculty member, John DePinto, the Visiting Artist Program aims to feature a range of diverse artists, styles and mediums throughout the school year, providing our students with opportunities to interact with and learn from professional art and artists.
Annually, six artists are selected for the program. Local artists exhibit for 6-7 weeks in Stevenson’s Visiting Artist Gallery. During the course of their exhibition, each artist visits two visual arts classrooms for an ARTalk to discuss their work, concepts and process. The Visiting Artist Program and ARTalks are presented in partnership with the Stevenson Foundation.
