Bettman Lecture Series

Inaugurated in 2004, the Bettman Lectures are an annual program of monthly lectures in art history sponsored by the Department of Art History and Archaeology. Endowed with a bequest from Linda Bettman, a former graduate student of the department, the lectures are named in her honor.

All events are held in room 612 of Schermerhorn Hall.
