Visiting Artists Series
The Visiting Artists Series (VAS) at YCCC was created with the express purpose of making the arts available and accessible to YCCC and the community-at-large. Every Fall YCCC invites a diverse array of artists to campus to discuss, demonstrate, exhibit and talk about their experiences as artists.These events are all FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC.
The Visiting Artists Series is very thrilled to announce the 2017 VAS series! Please mark your calendars and join us in October for this remarkable and engaging series lineup!
