The Sarah Hamilton Leathers '53 and Leone Bowers Hamilton '26 Arts Lecture Series Fund was established by Mr. James Leathers in honor of his wife, Sarah, and her mother, Leone. It is intended to bring artists to campus annually to lecture on current trends, methods, media and research within the visual arts. The Department of Art and Art History gratefully acknowledges this fund for making this event possible.
