4-VA Arts Grants ShowCase
In the Spring, the VP/CIO and the Vice Provost for the Arts jointly issued a Call for Proposals for the 4-VA Arts Grants Program, an opportunity for those working in the arts, architecture, and other creative disciplines to explore the potential of collaboration technologies for their work. That exploration could involve technology as the subject of the work, as a tool or medium, or both. On Monday, the award recipients will present their works in progress.

Professor Matthew Burtner, Music Department, is an Alaskan composer, sound artist and technologist specializing in concert music, eco-acoustics and interactive multimedia.
