Anderson Lecture Series

The Penn State School of Visual Arts John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series was established in 2001 through the generous support of John M. Anderson, Penn State Professor Emeritus.  The result of Dr. Anderson’s love of the philosophy of art and painting, his endowment contributes to the creative and intellectual life of the campus.  The series sponsors leading artists and scholars who lecture, give master classes and workshops, and critique student work throughout the academic year.  Dr. Anderson, an Evan Pugh Research Professor of Philosophy, was a long-time faculty member and three-time department head in the Department of Philosophy and the first director of Penn State’s Institute for the Arts and Humanities.  Lectures are free and open to the public.  Videos are generally uploaded at the end of the semester in which they occur.
