Outdoor Vision Fest 2013 A Success

SFUAD OVF 2013

Santa Fe University‘s Outdoor Vision Fest (OVF) 2013 was attended by more than a thousand people, and as the photo here proves, we couldn’t have gotten nicer weather (this snap shows off Santa Fe’s pretty skies — as well as a half-dozen of our 40+ installations — only a few minutes before showtime officially commenced).

Whether you were there or not, you can check out the OVF Facebook page for post-event feedback, Vine videos and photos (including a gorgeous set from professional photographer Eric Swanson, as the campus moved from dusk to darkness); check out the Twitter chatter about OVF 2013; review the OVF 2013 posts I filed; and otherwise plan to make it to the next OVF, which is likely to happen on Friday, May 2, 2014. Thanks to everyone — faculty, staff, and most of all student artists — who contributed to making OVF 2013 a success! It’s been a pleasure shepherding OVF since its inception.

You can live-stream the broadcast here. OVF happens on Friday night, April 26 — so this will probably be the last radio spot I do for the event.

Traveling to Savannah and Talking Art and Media

posthaus2Professors do a lot of things (beyond teaching classes, which is a substantial enough commitment on its own). This past week I presented a paper at the biennial Foundations in Art: Theory and Education (FATE) conference held in Savannah, Georgia.

The title of the topic was: Outdoor Vision Fest: A New Approach to Innovating Interdisciplinary Collaborations. You can check out the accompanying slideshow for the presentation here.
