This year’s theme, NEXUS: From Handmade to High-Tech, explores the creative intersection of handmade and high-tech applications in the practice and study of the visual arts. We anticipate hundreds of attendees representing diverse arts disciplines, offering them multiple opportunities for dynamic discourse, national exposure for academic research, and valuable networking opportunities with peers and leaders from higher education. Our agenda will include several days of inspiring speakers, practical workshops, and experiential events at the conference hotel, on the Ringling College of Art and Design campus, and at various other venues in this beautiful city by the sea.
We are especially proud to announce our keynote speaker for the 2014 SECAC Conference, Brandon Oldenburg, a distinguished graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design. Brandon is Creative Partner of Moonbot Studios, and his work includes the Academy Award-winning animated short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Nearby exhibitions showcasing the work of internationally acclaimed artists James Turrell and Patrick Dougherty will be highlights of the numerous tours being planned for conference attendees.
