Become an Eric Fischl Series Sponsor

In 2005, Eric Fischl — the contemporary painter, sculptor and author — returned to PC to give back to his alma mater, and to help aspiring artists. Fischl honors the college’s influence on his life annually, bringing world-famous artists, and art enthusiasts, to present the annual Eric Fischl Series.

Thanks to private sponsorships, Phoenix College has been able to make these opportunities possible for students free of charge.

Phoenix College is seeking sponsors for the 2024 Eric Fischl Series program, and beyond.  Join us in helping shape the future of art!  For more information, please contact Deborah Spotts at 602.285.7667, or by emailing


The Eric Fischl Series presents Mathew Richie

Phoenix Art Museum  |  625 N. Central Ave., Phoenix

5:30 - 6:30 pm     Student Art Exhibition & Reception, Phoenix Art Museum Great Hall
7:00 pm   Vanguard Awards & Guest Lecture, Phoenix Art Museum Whitman Hall
7:30 - 8:30 pm   Guest Artist Conversation with Eric Fischl

Matthew Ritchie was born in London, England, in 1964, and lives and works in New York. He received a BFA from Camberwell School of Art, London, and attended Boston University. His artistic mission has been no less ambitious than an attempt to represent the entire universe and the structures of knowledge and belief that we use to understand and visualize it. Often described as a painter, Ritchie creates works on paper, prints, light-box drawings, floor-to-wall installations, freestanding sculpture, websites, and short stories, which tie his works together into a narrative structure. Matthew and Eric’s discussion is certainly not to be missed!

2024 Fischl Series: Tickets Available Soon
Wednesdays are free days at the Phoenix Art Museum.  Overflow seating will be available in the Great Hall, on a first-come first served basis.
