I wanted to update you on an opportunity presented by the ICC, the GLRC, the College of Computing, the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, and the Copper Country Community Arts Center (CCCAC) and sponsored by multiple departments and organizations on campus and off.
We will be holding Art in Silico, a series of workshops. panels, lectures, and other events celebrating the intersection of computing and art which will culminate in a juried art show on April 13, 2023 at the Orpheum Theater. The show will be a combination fundraiser for the CCCAC and MTU student scholarships (artists can choose if they would like to donate their art for a silent auction benefiting these causes).
We currently have a Call for Artists out for any and all forms of visual, performance, or musical art. Submissions are welcomed and encouraged from students, faculty, staff, and community members! We anticipate $1,500 in prizes will be awarded, so please encourage your students, colleagues, friends, and family to participate. Amateur artists are of course welcomed, and we specifically have a category for Data Visualization!
Please spread the word and help us make this event a success. If you have interest in being on the planning committee, holding a workshop or event, or have any questions please reach out to me or Tim Havens. Submission information and more details are available on the website.
