About the Atlantic Lecture Series
The Atlantic Lecture Series was created by Sally Hurt and is supported through the Hurt Foundation for Claremont Graduate University University’s Art Department, with the express desire to bring talented artists from outside Los Angeles to Claremont. This series brings greater exposure of CGU Art to a wider platform of artists and art making, while also giving our students knowledge, discourse, and contacts with prominent artists working today. Since the inception of this lecture series, the art world has expanded into a global network and the meaning of Atlantic has broadened to represent a more inclusive nexus of art production in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
