"Animal Art" From U.Va.

October 23, 2000 -- More than 150 students and faculty from the University of Virginia's McIntire Department of Art will exhibit works featuring animal themes as part of the 13th Annual Virginia Film Festival. The student and faculty work will be joined by art installations by visiting artist Sam Easterson and Charlottesville artist Beatrix Ost. Music created in the Virginia Center for Computer Music (VCCM) in U.Va.'s McIntire Department of Music will accompany the exhibition.

The exhibit, "Animal Art," will be open from noon to 7 p.m. Oct. 26-29 at the Frank Ix building on Elliott Street in Charlottesville.

"Look for the purply-pink hippo out front," says William Bennett, studio chair in the McIntire Department of Art. "The exhibit is very exciting. It's a chance for the entire department to put on a show together and for the community to revel in the richness and variety of our work."

Faculty and students in the entire sculpture, printmaking, and digital media programs and several drawing classes as well as fifth-year post-baccalaureate students are participating in "Animal Art." Each individual class will have an exhibition area in the 120-by-180-foot space in the Frank Ix building.

To accompany the images, a team comprised of VCCM technical director Dave Topper and music graduate students Damon Osgood and Christopher Staefe created the electronic music composition. Altered sounds of animal noises, jungle sounds and animal songs are woven together to expand the sensory experience of the show.

The Frank Ix exhibition space was donated by Monticello Associates, owners of the building.
