The Student Art Alliance at SUNY New Paltz has announced the schedule of its spring 2016 Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

This series has become the flagship of the Student Art Alliance, an entirely student-run organization that for years has supported and enhanced opportunities for campus community members to view fine art and gain insights into the process of working art professionals.

More than 200 internationally recognized artists and designers representing the range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary interests of the region have participated to date.
