In the Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program (DANM) at UC Santa Cruz, two years of intensive study culminate in the development of individual projects, which premiere in an annual MFA exhibition. In honor of the golden anniversary of UC Santa Cruz and the tenth anniversary of the DANM program, twelve emerging artists have come together to present New Alchemy, a group exhibition exploring various processes of transformation through interactive, digital, mixed-media, and performative work. danm.ucsc.edu/mfa15
The exhibition is the centerpiece of a day-long festival celebrating DANM’s first decade, on April 25, 2015. This free event includes outdoor exhibits and interactive demos, the annual DANM MFA art exhibition, alumni slideshows, research lab open houses, and a masquerade ball. It’s a day of DIY making, projection mapping, repurposed military vehicles, free food, fine art, vacuform masks, kids crafts and more – It’s pan-DANM-onium!
