The School of Arts & Communication's Visiting Artists and Scholars program brings nationally and internationally renowned artists, designers, and historians to OSU for lectures, workshops, critiques, and presentations of work. VAS presenters spend the day working with and speaking to art students, giving OSU students the opportunity to meet these working professionals and to find out what it takes to be a successful visual artist, designer, or scholar. VAS presenters also give an evening talk that is free and open to the public. Recent Visiting Artists and Scholars have included Hank Willis Thomas, Shoshana Weinberger, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Artemio Rodriguez, Nigel Poor, Sarah Krajewski, Ben Buswell, Martin Venezky, Sue Coe, Rebecca Mendez, Philip Pearlstein, Nancy Skolos and Tom Wedell, Harrell Fletcher, Lucille Tenazas, Mikon Van Gastel, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Ann Hamilton, Carol Ann Carter, GUM, Yoshiko Shimano, Elliott Earls, Marina Abramovic, Douglas Crimp, Rick Valicenti, Rebecca Belmore, Bill Viola, Do Ho Suh, Ursula von Rydingsvard, John Sexton, Luba Lukova, Michael Cherney, Andrew Stein Raftery, Wangechi Mutu, Matthew Hopson-Walker, John Hilliard and Hasan Elahi.
