The 2018 Eric Fischl Lecture Series will feature contemporary artist José Lerma.

Phoenix College and contemporary American painter, sculptor and author Eric Fischl are shaping the future of art in Arizona and beyond by providing life-changing opportunities for students.

In 2005, Fischl returned to Phoenix College to give back to his alma mater and to help aspiring artists. Fischl honors the college’s influence on his life by returning annually with world-famous artists and art enthusiasts to present the Eric Fischl Series.  The Series, held at the Phoenix Art Museum, draws hundreds of students, artists, and community members from across the city and state for an engaging discourse about various art themes.

As part of the event, Fischl presents the prestigious Vanguard Award to Phoenix College students whose artwork receives “Best in Show” in the Student Art Competition.
