As the World Turns: Young Artists and Global Events
Dr. Vecchio plays a prominent role in the community of art and education receiving her BA in Massachusetts, BFA from Chicago, and graduate degree overseas. In this lecture titled As the World Turns: Young Artists and Global Events Vecchio will address the changes we’ve seen during the past decade. Referring to young art students and their mounting pressures such as challenges in the everyday and their decisions with education, she will share with us an innovative insight for our own roles as fellow artists, viewers, students, teachers, and friends throughout society. Vecchio will also be visiting with the resident artists at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) discussing the content and form of their studio’s current projects and work. LEARN MORE>
