Hanes Art Center, 115 S Columbia Street, Chapel Hill, NC, on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will be the location for UNC Art Department’s Visiting Artist Series.
An endowment established in 1983 through the generosity of Nancy and Robin Hanes supports the Art Department’s Visiting Artist Series. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our M.F.A. students. The Hanes Visiting Artist series greatly enriches both the academic programs and outreach to the wider community. All lectures are free and open to the public.
Hanes Visiting Art Lecture Series welcomes Ezra Wube on September 20th, 2022, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event is free.
