Digital Art Exhibition
June 18 – August 6
The Gallery at OCA Mocha presents a Digital Art Exhibition, continuing through August 6. Curator Liam Garrett ’21, graphic design, states:
“OCA Mocha is hosting a digital art exhibition in pursuit of celebrating and raising exposure to contemporary artists in our community. Our goal is to create a space that explores the digital art world and its ability to provide artists an advanced vehicle for creativity, innovation, and spirit. When someone views a paintbrush, one may imagine brushstrokes of colorful pigment upon a canvas. But If you ask a person to describe digital art the answer is often more abstract.
“Digital art made its debut in the art scene during the 1960s with computer artists like Frieder Nake, who combined computer science and creativity to generate art. Since then the capabilities of technology have rapidly increased to levels unfathomable in Mr. Nake’s time. This technological progression has created limitless avenues for digital artists to express themselves. Our exhibition wishes to host those artists who are exploring this new medium.”
Admission to the exhibition is free.
The Gallery at OCA Mocha is dedicated to promoting and showcasing the creative efforts of UMBC and the surrounding community in its mission to unite people through artistic expression. Located at 5410 East Drive in Arbutus, Maryland, the gallery is open free to the public, with hours 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
