20:20 Call for Student Participants

Calling all high school, LCCC, and UW art students!
You’re invited to participate in

at the UW Art Museum on Monday, March 1st, 7 pm

The UW Art Museum is pleased to announce its fourth 20:20 event. 20:20 is a fast-paced presentation format whereby presenters are able to show 20 images for 20 seconds each. The total presentation time is only 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Advance sign-up is required and offered on a first come, first served basis.

20:20 Students is scheduled at the UW Art Museum on Monday, March 1, 7-9 pm. It is open to LCCC, University of Wyoming, and high school students. All disciplines are welcome. The deadline to submit images in a PowerPoint format is Monday, February 22.

20:20 is an opportunity to share accomplishments in the arts, ideas, new work and images. The program is meant to foster open dialogue and communication among student artists and to provide an opportunity for networking with colleagues. It is also a great opportunity for students to practice public speaking skills, talk about their artwork, and to see what other students are doing.

The format of 20:20 is borrowed from a program that was first developed in Japan by two architects who were looking for a new way to present design ideas in an upbeat and exciting way. Events like 20:20 now occur internationally as specially organized evening events where the focus is on sharing information and community participation.

To sign up: contact Assistant Curator Rachel Miller at 307.766.6621 or rmiller@uwyo.edu
Deadline to submit images: Monday, February 22, 2010
*Images must be in PowerPoint format!

The UW Art Museum aims to host 3-4 20:20 events throughout the year, each one targeting a specific group of artists, arts organizations and educators. The next 20:20 will be held on June 7th, for Performing Artists.
