The public is invited to experience two digital media events created by students of UA Assistant Professor Jane Cassidy this week! An exhibition in Ferguson Student Center Art Gallery opens with a reception on Wednesday, April 5, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., and runs through April 15, 2017. The exhibit includes print works as well as gifs, stop-motion animation, video and other formats.
Then, during First Friday on April 7, everyone is invited to experience “video reality” in downtown Tuscaloosa! Digital media students have made new work in response to the Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art at The University of Alabama and it will be projected on two downtown Tuscaloosa galleries. The Jones Projection will happen between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. One projection will be on the side of Grace Aberdean Habitat Alchemy, on 9th Street between 21st and 22nd avenues (2424 9th Street). The other projection will be in the alley behind Harrison Galleries, approached from 23rd Avenue.
