VACS - Visiting Artists + Critics Series

The UCCS Visiting Artists & Critics Series’ eleventh season will feature a lineup of presentations by artists and critics of national and international significance. The program’s goal is to foster understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through dialogue and critical conversations. Each VACS lecture takes place in the Chapman Foundation Recital Hall, next door to the Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery in the Ent Center for the Arts.

Over the past decade, the series co-produced by the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art and UCCS Visual Art & Art History programs has invited artists and scholars to the UCCS campus to present public lectures and meet with undergraduate students in classes and workshop settings.

The series is generously supported by the CU President’s Fund for the Humanities, Colorado Creative Industries, UCCS Student Government Association, and the Bee Vradenburg Foundation.

New Jersey based artist Lauren Rosenthal McManus is VAPA’s Female Emerging Artist Residency Series resident for fall 2022.  Her work focuses on the relationship between communities and their local watersheds and she draws upon map making, cartography, art history, and ecology to reveal, explore, and re-envision our culture’s complex relationship with fresh  water. Her practice is centered on creating large, site- specific, temporary wall drawing murals of regional watersheds using pigments made from rocks and soil collected along their banks.  For her show at GOCA Downtown, she will make a drawing of the Fountain Creek watershed, while also exhibiting prints from her artist book her piece Political / Hydrological: A Watershed Remapping of the Contiguous United States, a folio that re-envision the geo-political boundaries of each of our country’s lower 48 states fifty states by way of their primary watersheds.
