Event Description

Michael Wright, Digital Media Professor at Otis College of Art and Design, will present his virtual world project as part of a panel covering “Innovations from Art Education” at the WASC Academic Resource Conference 2009 in Hollywood, California April 15-18. The 2009 WASC ARC is dedicated to supporting institutions of higher education as they define their challenges, develop solutions, and demonstrate results. The Academic Resource Conference will address the contradictions and tensions that educators face: innovation and tradition, high culture and popular taste, technology and craft, new influences and sometimes sluggish responses, and the financial challenges that will be with us for some time to come. The panel is made up of Justine Garrett & Jacqueline Bobak from Cal Arts, Mary Ellen Poole from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Wright from Otis College of Art and Design.

Michael Wright is a painter who began to explore Digital Media in the mid 1980s on an Amiga computer. He exhibited his first Digital Prints in 1989. He has exhibited digital and traditional works on a national & international level over the past 38 years.
