Program Overview

The Visiting Artist Program connects Stevenson students to professional visual artists through gallery exhibits and artist presentations. 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. Annually, six artists exhibit for 6-7 weeks in the Visiting Artist Gallery. During the course of their exhibition, each artist visits two visual arts classrooms for an ARTalk, discussing their work, concepts, and process. The Visiting Artist Program and ARTalks are presented in partnership with the Stevenson Foundation.

2020 Digital Exhibitions

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Fall Semester will be conducted online as a part of SHS Remote Learning + plan. For more information, visit the Reopening section of our website.

Subsequently, the Visiting Artist Program will feature selected artists’ work exclusively online and displayed on the hallway monitors throughout the school year in a series of Digital Exhibitions. Classrooms will continue to benefit from the Visiting Artists’ expertise through two online presentations conducted over Zoom.
