"The Sphere Series"

"The Sphere Series" is a collaboration of the McColl Center for Art + Innovation, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and LaCa (Latin American Contemporary Art) Projects, supported by our partners in the Charlotte creative community. 

Founded by Hilary Burt, the group is dedicated to bringing leaders in the arts from all over the globe to engage in thoughtful and relevant discussions on how arts and creativity can spark life-changing dialogue and promote necessary social change. 

The "Art History Lecture Series" is a monthly social intended to provide insight into artists, their traditions, techniques and the art movements they are often associated with. It was initiated by  Liz Faison, private collector and Board Member of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art,  Jessica Moss, artist, academic scholar and arts educator, and Hilary Burt.

Hilary Burt is a Professor of Art History and Arts Leadership + Administration at Queens University of Charlotte, NC. She has been published by IGI Global ("Making it Pay: Why Colleges and Universities should reclaim funding and benefits for the liberal arts by adding more practical training"), Trade Routes and the NY Canadian Consulate ("Visual Arts Market in the Tri-State Area for Canadian Art Galleries"), and was copyeditor for the American National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage (Developing Intellectual Property Policies, A Guide for Museums").
