The Visiting Artist, Scholar, and Designer (VASD) Program explores critical, diverse, and creative inquiry. This interdisciplinary initiative enriches the academic experience at RMCAD and serves the greater Denver-metro community.
This Program unites the entire RMCAD community and opens its doors to the Denver-metro area by inviting the public to attend a variety of evening lectures and events presented by our roster of distinguished guests. These guests also engage with RMCAD students and faculty through private events, such as studio visits, gallery talks, and workshops.

The Senses Series
The fall 2016 / spring 2017 VASD Program lecture series will present a variety of perspectives highlighting the extraordinary aspects of the most common element of our humanity: the senses. Throughout the series we'll explore the ways contemporary artists, scholars, and designers are creating and studying ways to stimulate and satiate the multifaceted senses, influencing our interactions and knowledge of the world and of our selves.
For tickets to the upcoming lectures and events in the Senses series, please visit our website: vasd.rmcad.edu.

The Humor Series
The fall 2015 / spring 2016 Humor lecture series focused on the application of comedy, parody, irony, play, and wit as instruments of communication and experimentation in art, design, and culture. As a fundamental element of the human experience, humor crosses nations and histories. Existing in a boundary-blurring space where joy and anguish meet, humor allows creators to reveal the severity and ridiculousness of contemporary life.
Lecturers in the Humor series included Donna Conlon and Jonathan Harker, Peter McGraw and Chelsey Delaney, Ian Bogost, JK Keller and Keetra Dean Dixon, Kalup Linzy, Jim Woodring, and Miranda July.
