Lincoln, Neb.--The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s School of Art, Art History & Design’s Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series brings notable artists, scholars and designers to Nebraska each semester to enhance the education of students.
The final lectures in the series this fall will be presented by ceramic artists Linda Lopez and Cristina Córdova on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 15. Their lectures are free and open to the public and are also sponsored by the Clay Club.

She founded Travel Arte, an ongoing platform that provides educational experiences within the ceramics medium while immersing students in the creative culture of a specific setting.
Underwritten by the Hixson-Lied Endowment with additional support from other sources, the series enriches the culture of the state by providing a way for Nebraskans to interact with luminaries in the fields of art, art history and design. Each visiting artist or scholar spends one to three days on campus to meet with classes, participate in critiques and give demonstrations.
