The Visiting Artist Series arts residency program brings professional touring artists to the Quad Cities for one to two weeks and introduces students to live artists who represent diverse disciplines. Artists are chosen for their quality or educational ability.
The objectives of the series are to provide extended interactions between the artists and the community, to expose and educate student and adult audiences by broadening their understandings of the arts, and to make arts accessible to a wide variety of people.
Performances occur mostly in schools, but also at business locations, social service organizations and public facilities. The series offers programs for members of civic organizations and after-school programs, senior citizens, the disabled and programs for at-risk youth, including alternative school students.
