College of the Art’s biannual research lightning talks

How better to celebrate the close of the semester than a celebration of faculty and student work? COTA faculty and students are invited to create lightning presentations to share a current or recent project or creative activity to share. The presentations allow us to highlight and uplift the incredible work taking place in the college just as the semester closes out! Join us in supporting the faculty and students who conduct the research that helps demonstrate the impact and diversity of research in the arts.
