Description

The DIGITAL EYES 2008-2009 Exhibition at Barnsdall Art Park has been in the planning stages for more than a year! LA ACM SIGGRAPH's own Jen Grey, is the Guest Curator at The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery of this awesome lineup of exhibits and live events focusing on Computer Graphics, Animation, Performance Art, and Music.

As result of this great event which lasts from November through January, we will NOT have our monthly Second Tuesday meeting as usual, to instead bring you this invitation to attend the Opening Reception on Sunday Evening, November 9th from 6 - 9 pm.

It's FREE! Bring all the friends you'd like to impress or inspire. What a great place to learn and keep up with it all! Featuring the SIGGRAPH '07 Traveling Art Show, and The latest SIGGRAPH 2008 Computer Animation Festival screenings, including new and magically bizarre installations, and music performances on a hill overlooking Los Angeles -- in a world famous architectural setting… A truly magical vibe will convene for the Opening Reception on the evening of Nov. 9th!

Don't miss being alive at this great moment in time. The sunset views at Barnsdall are spectacular, so get there early and get some of the great food planned for the event. Beer & Wine will be available for purchase.
