The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Robert Hult to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, November 29, 2018, 7 p.m. for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

He has held two solo exhibitions of drawings by Butt Johnson at CRG Gallery in New York, as well as group exhibitions at Kerry Schuss Gallery, Invisible Exports, and Senior and Shopmaker in New York, Geoffrey Young Gallery in Great Barrington, Mass., The Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, AZ, The Pizzuti Collection in Columbus, OH, The Spencer Art Museum in Lawrence, KS, The Contemporary Art Museum Houston, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.

The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series features a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to visit the campus and discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our BFA and MFA students. This program has established itself as an invaluable resource for UNLV students and the public alike. The primary mission of the UNLV Artist Lecture Series is to educate, inspire and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual presentations and discourse.
