Our 5th outing of Outdoor Vision Fest™ attracted its biggest crowd to date (see the handy-dandy chart at the bottom of this post), and despite a few glitches, garnered essentially universal acclaim on Twitter and Instagram.
One of the best aspects of having co-created and then shepherded OVF these past years has been working with up&comers like The Maya Spectra and VJ Buran; alumni who are already making an impact on Santa Fe’s media and cultural affairs scenes (Keith Ryan Riggs, Katelyn Peer, and Seth Fuller, to name a few); talented guest artists like choreographer Jocelyne Danchick; and faculty colleagues Brad Wolfley and Tom Miller.
Concluding the OVF2015 media tour, Studio Arts Professor Tom Miller and I join the lively host of “ArtBeat”, Kathryn Davis, to talk about some of the “fine art” aspects of Outdoor Vision Fest™: this Thursday, April 30, 1pm MDT, at KVSF 101.5FM. Catch it if you’re near a radio and in Northern New Mexico. Live-stream it otherwise.
In case you missed last week’s “Cinema Scope” broadcast on KSFR-FM, you can download the podcast version and get 15 minutes of great Outdoor Vision Fest™ talk with Professor Tom Miller, Studio Arts major Victoria Medina, and myself. We talk about many of the upcoming installations, including the Make Santa Fe makerspace pop-up that Victoria and student artist Victor Rojas are contributing to. Get a filmic perspective on OVF 2015 with affable host Stu Goswick.
Missed my appearance on “The Richard Eeds Show” this morning? You’re in luck: the broadcast has been archived, and you can find myself along with Studio Arts Professor Tom Miller discussing all things Outdoor Vision Fest with the affable radio host (first time either of us had been on Eeds’ show). We’re on the 10am segment and occupy most of the hour: an unusually lengthy time to discuss some of the installations and some of the night’s ambience.
Continuing the media blitz this week: Studio Arts Professor Tom Miller joins me on the airwaves again, this Tuesday, April 28, at 10am MDT. We’ll tag-team Santa Fe’s drivetime morning broadcast “The Richard Eeds Show,” which airs on KVSF-101.5FM in northern New Mexico. Naturally, we’ll be talking about all things Outdoor Vision Fest™ (OVF). With nearly 50 installations scheduled to launch the night of May 1, we don’t run out of things to talk about. If you can’t get near a radio or if you’re outside of the immediate broadcast area, you can still livestream the broadcast.
(Don’t forget: you can vote for OVF as “Best (Event) of Santa Fe” — through May 3. And we’d be so appreciative of your vote…)
And in case you missed my appearance (with talented student artist Chris Beran) on KVSF-FM‘s “The Julia Goldberg Show” this past Friday (discussing Outdoor Vision Fest™, of course) you can catch it here: we’re 30+ minutes into the show.
The Santa Fe Reporter gave Outdoor Vision Fest™ a nice shoutout in its latest issue, and quoted yours truly along with my esteemed professorial colleague Brad Wolfley. A very cool new installation, “Transcendence,” gets some of the spotlight, along with our very creative students making work.
This is a great chance to again advocate a vote for Outdoor Vision Fest™ as the “Best (Event or Festival) of Santa Fe” in the Reporter‘s annual “Best Of” competition — I would be personally very appreciative of the vote, and you don’t even need to be a Santa Fe resident to vote!
