Curriculum Innovations ; Immersed in Every Sense, Visiting Artist Series Our new visiting artist series, Immersed in Every Sense, funded by a Visiting Artist Grant from the Vice-Provost for the Arts and the Visiting Artist Fund from the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies, has given us the opportunity to bring visiting artists at different points in their professional careers into the classroom to present their work and meet with our students. It has connected our students directly to practicing artists from various art centers throughout the country, exposing them to what the artistic world has to offer beyond Duke. This series has benefited classes relating to the specific disciplines of the different artists, along with introducing our beginning students enrolled in ARTSVIS 54: Introduction to Visual Practice to the wide scope of artistic practices and offering our advanced students in ARTSVIS 169S Advanced Visual Practice, the upcoming 200S Capstone in the Visual Arts and the MFA students the chance to meet individually with these artists to discuss their current projects. In addition to classroom/student interactions, students also have the opportunity to attend a lecture by the artist about their work open to the general public. Fall 2011 artists included: Clement Valla, Eduardo Kac, Benj Gerdes, Jennifer Hayashida, Marc Handelman and Meridith Pingree.
