Center for Visual Culture
Since 1999, the Center for Visual Culture at Bryn Mawr College has served as home to a weekly colloquium featuring presentations by scholars across a wide range of disciplines, as well as talks by visual artists, curators, and theorists, who engage and challenge in this forum.
The Center for Visual Culture builds on the traditions in art and archeological study at Bryn Mawr while supporting inquiry and exploration into modern visual expression.
Presentations sponsored by the Center are Free and Open to the public.
