Pre-Columbian Art through the Eyes of Modern and Contemporary Artists is a lecture series organized by Patrice Giasson held in the Neuberger Museum and created in tandem with a seminar entitled Pre-Columbian Aesthetics in Modern Latin American Art offered in the Art History Department at Purchase College.

Renowned artists from Latin America as well as university scholars will lecture on the legacies of Pre-Columbian aesthetics.
