The University of Arkansas School of Art is pleased to welcome visiting artist, Mike Calway-Fagan, to the Spring 2018 lecture series. The lecture is made possible by the Joy Pratt Markham Visiting Artist Fund, which supports the school by bringing renowned artists and scholars to the University of Arkansas to speak to both students and the community. Mike Calway-Fagan will join us Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the Hillside Auditorium, room 206. The event is free and open to the public.
