April 21, 2011 (6:00-9:00 pm)
On April 21, The UCF School of Visual Arts and Design (SVAD) will hold its annual Premiere and Exposition from 6:00 to 9:00 PM at the Center for Emerging Media, 500 West Livingston St., Orlando.
Selected undergraduate and graduate students in Art, Digital Media and Architecture will exhibit their creative media projects in “science fair” style. The projects span a wide range of areas, from creative interactive art to novel mobile media to new applications of videogame technology. In fact we don’t know everything that will be shown, because it’s being invented right now.
Three animated films produced by UCF students will be premiered. UCF faculty, alumni and industrial affiliates will also be on-hand to discuss their media related creative work and research. The event provides an opportunity to meet potential future employees, see and experience leading-edge experimental media, and catch up with old friends.
6:00 PM – Exhibition opens. Refreshments are served
6:30 PM – First showing of Premieres of three animated films
7:30 PM – Second showing of Premieres
8:00 PM – Awards presented for best exhibits in several categories
9:00 PM – Exhibition closes.
SVAD combines the former Art and Digital Media Departments with the new joint UCF/VSC/UF program in Architecture. Over 1500 students pursue BA, BFA, Bachelor of Design, MA and MFA and degrees in Art, Digital Media and Architecture.
