Since 1998, the CCS Woodward Lecture Series has remained one of the most high-profile visiting artist programs in southeastern Michigan. Each year, the Series brings distinguished artists, critics, curators and scholars to the CCS campus to lecture on their work or fields of interest, and to engage CCS students in extracurricular activities such as critiques, workshops, demonstrations, tours and studio visits. The Woodward Lecture Series’ notable visitors are recognized for their innovative, rigorous and culturally diverse work, and it remains CCS’ goal for the Series to create a broad, continuing dialogue around contemporary art practice and interpretation.
Some of the internationally celebrated artists and scholars who have visited CCS include artists John Chamberlain, Ed Ruscha, Elizabeth Murray and Ryan Trecartin, critics Roberta Smith, Michael Kimmelman and Peter Schjeldahl, and curators Klaus Kertess, Lynne Cooke and Anne Pasternak.
