Visiting Artists

Throughout the year, Williston brings in visiting artists to share their expertise in our academic and campus life programs. In the last few years alone, we’ve had dozens, including street arts practitioners, ceramicists, YA authors, Random House editors, Grammy-winning musicians, social media artists, and sports photographers.

The Grum Project

The Grum Project is Williston’s visiting artist program, funded by a generous alumna. As Tanja Hollander prepared her Mass MoCA show, Are You Really My Friend?, she spent three days on campus discussing social media’s intersection with art and set up a campus-wide Instagram account, @willistonpictureswords.

Grubbs Gallery

Williston’s on-campus art gallery showcases the work of students, faculty, and visiting artists. It is located in the Reed Campus Center.

Photographers Lecture Series

Each year, an outstanding group of guest documentary photographers, photojournalists, commercial photographers, photo editors, and others involved in the field, visit the Williston Northampton campus to show examples of their work and offer insight and opportunity for discussion as part of the school’s Photographers’ Lecture Series.


Writers' Workshop

For more than two decades, the Writers’ Workshop Series has brought acclaimed authors to campus to present to the public, and to do an intensive workshop session with students in Writers’ Workshop classes.
