The Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities is pleased to welcome renowned artist Sandy Rodriguez, the 2022-23 Estelle Lebowitz Endowed Visiting Artist, for a public lecture. The Lebowitz program annually brings to the University community and general public the work and ideas of exceptional women artists through solo exhibitions, lectures, and short campus residencies.
