The School of Art, Art History & Design is pleased to host Jeff Fontana as a Hixson Lied Visiting Scholar Oct. 30-Nov. 1.

Jeff Fontana is associate professor and Harry E. Smith Distinguished Teaching Professor in Art History at Austin College in Sherman, Texas, where he is currently chair of the Art and Art History Department. An Italian Renaissance scholar by training, he focuses on the career of the painter Federico Barocci, on whose work he has published articles and acted as an exhibition consultant. His interest in the interpretation of the Italian Renaissance in French and American art in the late 19th and early 20th centuries intersects with his study of drawings and drawing practice in his research on the painter, draftsman, and educator George B. Bridgman.

The Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series is underwritten by the Hixson-Lied Endowment, with additional support from other sources. The program brings notable artists, scholars and designers to the University of Nebraska; enhancing the education of our students and enriching the culture of the state by providing a way for the public to interact with luminaries in the fields of art, art history and design.

Parking is available in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage on the corner of Stadium Drive and T Streets.
