The Richard A. and Rissa W. Grossman Artist-in-Residence and Exhibition Series was established by Richard A. Grossman ’64 and his wife, Rissa W., to provide opportunities for intensive interaction between students and major artists. The series also supports presentations of significant exhibitions. The program has brought to campus some of the most significant artists of the later 20th and early 21st century. The strength of the residency lies not only in the quality of the artists, but also in the intensity of their interaction with the students. Lafayette students have been profoundly influenced by the Grossman Artist-in-Residence program.
