Save the Dates for 20:20: 2/7 and 3/7 @ 7 pm

The first two 20:20 events of 2011 are coming up! The Art Museum has been holding various 20:20 events for the past year and a half. This program is designed for artists to share their work, network with colleagues, and to keep the community informed of the different artists who work in the area. Those who sign up are given 20 images in a PowerPoint format, and each image is shown for only 20 seconds, resulting in a 6 minute and 40 second presentation. This fast-paced format keeps the presentations informal, eliminating stage fright, and keeps the audience engaged.

The first 20:20 of 2011 is on Monday, February 7th at 7 pm and is open to any and all UW students. This includes students from all disciplines, not just art. If you, or another student you know of, are art majors or creates art in his or her spare time and would like to present what they do to peers, faculty members, and the community, please consider signing up.

The second 20:20 is a month later, on Monday, March 7th at 7 pm and is open to LCCC and UW faculty members in the visual and performing arts. This is a chance for professors to share with their students and the community what they create outside of the classroom.

Advanced sign up for 20:20 is required and is on a first come first serve basis. There must be a minimum of 8 participants. The deadline to submit a PowerPoint for students is Wednesday, February 2. The deadline to submit a PowerPoint for faculty is Monday, February 28. For more information, or to sign up, please contact Assistant Curator Rachel Miller at 307.766.6621 or
