Washington DC ACM SIGGRAPH at the Torpedo Factory Art Center – January 15, 2015

The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is partnering with the Torpedo Factory Art Center to host a lecture focusing on Digital Art and Animation. Hannah Benbow and Roberto Ortiz (chapter Chair), both members of the Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH with very different backgrounds, will discuss their approaches to the digital medium along with how a traditional art background has played a role in their current fields. Members of the chapter will also be available to answer questions and to discuss their experiences in the field of Digital Art and Animation.
