Throughout the academic year, KCAI students have opportunities to meet, work with and hear lectures by a wide range of campus visitors, many of whom are celebrated artists and designers. Often, they conduct workshops during their stay. Some take time to talk with students one-on-one and critique their work.
Hoffman Visiting Lecturer
Sharon and John Hoffman have supported KCAI for almost fifty years and have both served on the KCAI Board of Trustees. They are major collectors of contemporary art, and own works from numerous KCAI alumni including sculptor, dancer and performance artist Nick Cave. The Hoffman Visiting Artist Endowment is another way for them to show their deep commitment to nurturing and supporting the careers of artists.
