Earlier this Summer, Assistant Professor Adam Forrester was one of twenty-one artists selected from an international pool and received the coveted “Curator’s Choice Award” at DigitalGraffiti at Alys Beach – a projection art festival located on scenic Highway 30A in Northwest Florida’s South Walton County. In its eighth year, Digital Graffiti transforms Alys Beach’s stark white walls into a canvas of light. The three-day festival includes a Curator’s Tour of select digital art, exhibitions, an awards ceremony and a closing celebration. Curator Brett Phares and a panel of art and industry experts served as the jury for the festival in addition to selecting works for the Best in Show and Curator’s Choice Award.
Adam’s video, entitled Inhumation, received the prize. Congratulations, Adam!
