20:20 Call for Statewide Presenters

The UW Art Museum is pleased to announce its fifth 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 Statewide is scheduled at the Hilton Garden Inn, Casper on Friday, April 23, 8-10 pm. It is open to statewide visual artists. The deadline to submit images in a PowerPoint format is Friday, April 9.

This is part of a weekend of arts events that includes a Saturday evening reception to announce the recipients of the 2010 Wyoming Arts Council visual arts fellowship. That will be followed by an artists' roundtable featuring the three fellowship judges.

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.

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.

For more information on 20:20, or to sign up, please contact UW Art Museum Assistant Curator Rachel Miller at 307.766.6621 or rmiller@uwyo.edu.
