Lecture Series & Events

Chautauqua Visual Arts (CVA) hosts a public lecture series of profound thought leaders in the visual arts from all over the world. We are delighted to present luminaries who will share their current projects and discuss relevant topics of the day.

Each lecture and discussion occurs every Tuesday evening during our summer season and on the second Tuesday of every month during the rest of the year, from 6:30pm to 8:30pmEST. We welcome everyone to attend online and to participate by asking questions live, in conversation with our guests. All of our talks are free and open to the public and recorded for your viewing pleasure beyond the live lecture.

Additionally, CVA is meant to be a place where people can visit freely, participate, share and experience a wide variety of master and enrichment classes and workshops through our programming in our physical Arts Quad, the large Drawing Room and our Galleries. There is something for anyone who wants to embrace their creativity, even if they’re simply curious to take a peek and observe those who are professional artists living a creative life. Come join us.
