SkypeOnArt/SkypeOnSustainability – Spring 2017
Rutgers–Camden will become the central hub for interactive, online conversations with nationally and internationally renowned artists, as it presents “SkypeOnArt/SkypeOnSustainability” this spring. This semester’s lineup includes discussions about sustainability as it relates to eco art, public art, community art, and Camden, NJ. The talks give members of the Rutgers–Camden community an unparalleled opportunity to talk intimately with some of the world’s most innovative art makers. Artists who are luminaries in their fields share with us images or video shorts of their work and answer questions. The great thing about the SkypeOnArt lecture series is that the audience really gets an opportunity to direct the discussion.
All talks will take place in the Digital Studies Lab, Fine Arts Building Room 215.
Everyone is invited! Feel free to bring your lunch!
All talks are free and open to the public.
