As part of our Artists-in-Residence Program, we invite internationally recognized artists and critics to give critical studio feedback to our program participants, allowing residents a chance to receive constructive input on the direction of their work. There are two visiting critics during the term of each residency program. During their time at Anderson Ranch, visiting critics typically give a public lecture and spend one to three days critiquing resident or student work.
