Judith Zabar Visiting Artist Program


In November 2007, Hunter College received a generous commitment to establish the

Judith Zabar Visiting Artist Program Fund

The Zabar Visiting Artist Fund has allowed Hunter to bring a series of artists to campus to work directly with MFA students in the art studio and to interact with students studying art and art history at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Through a series of public lectures the Zabar Visiting Artist also reaches Hunter’s broader student and faculty community as well as the public.

The Zabar Visiting Artist Program is facilitated by a faculty committee made up of art historians and studio professors. Every semester the committee organizes a series of top artists to act as Zabar Artists and be in residency on Hunter’s campus for a minimum of one week each. While at Hunter Zabar Artists work directly with students in master classes, critical seminars and private tutorials providing students with the unique opportunity to interact with top practitioners in the field.  Each Zabar Artist also presents a public lecture where they discuss their work, engage in conversation with a member of Hunter’s faculty and attendees.
