This entry is long overdue, but much has been in transition. Project Identity’s last working group called it a wrap during the midst of summer as they completed some of the finest entries seen thus far for the project. You might call it the PI ‘Dream Team’ as the class was a beautiful microcosm of the entire experience. During MIAD’s pre-college programming PI had participants from numerous states that spanned from eastern shores of Virginia to the plains of Kansas. Florida splendidly represented the south and Minnesota & Wisconsin stood proud for the north. These young people, under the guidance of David Martin (Creative Writing), Brandon Bauer (Video) & James Barany (Animation) did a superb job of examining the notion of self and continuing the collaborative experience.
Project Identity will be on exhibition at MIAD from October 4th – October 25th. MIAD will celebrate with a closing reception after the conclusion of National Portfolio Day on October 25th at MIAD. The closing reception will run from 2pm-4pm immediately following the end of Portfolio Day. Mark it down and make it a day to celebrate both your accomplishments and your potential. Come get your artwork reviewed and celebrate all at the same place, on the same day! Shortly after the closing Professor Barany will begin submitting PI to film festivals across the USA in ‘teacher led’ & ‘student’ categories for animated work. More details regarding the festivals to follow in the near future!
