to campus for public lectures and interactions with the Master of
Fine Arts program. This series is housed in the College of
Letters and Science and organized by the Department of Art and
Art History studio faculty and M.F.A. studio art candidates.
Public lectures are at 4:30 pm and are free and open to the
Lectures will be held primarily in the Community Education Room
at the Manetti Shrem Museum, UC Davis, unless otherwise
The Art Building is located on Hutchison Drive, about halfway
between the Memorial Union and Mrak Hall on the UC Davis campus.
There is limited parking behind the building, but there is
visitor parking nearby, across the Arboretum in lot VP5.
