In a recent event, the University of Arkansas welcomed Adriane Herman Nov. 7-10 as part of the Visiting Artist/Scholar Series.

Herman's visit was hosted and funded by the McIlroy family, who funded the McIlroy Family Visiting Professorship in Performing and Visual Arts, which was founded in 2005 through the Hayden and Mary Joe McIlroy and the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation.

Funding for this series has also been given by Joy Pratt Endowment Fund.

During her visit, the artist met with students in order to discuss and offer her expertise concerning their work. She also aided the students and faculty in their collaborative fine art print publishing and research component, known as Red Ridge Editions.

On her final day, Herman presented a lecture in the Hillside Auditorium on her most recent projects and works.

Herman graduated with her B.A. from Smith College and earned her M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Throughout her career, Herman has lectured at more than 50 institutions in the U.S.

As an artist and printmaker herself, Herman has displayed her work around the world, including New York, Chicago, Maine and Sweden. Recognition for her work has been exhibited through the Rocket Grant and the Charlotte Street Foundation.
