Two Computer Science Students to be Featured in Coburn Art Gallery Senior Exhibition II

Computer Science students Marissa Uhrig and D. Kees Edwards will be part of the Senior Art Exhibition II in the Coburn Art Gallery, April 24 – May 10.  Both students will be graduating this spring with dual majors in Computer Science and  Computer Art and Graphics Programming. 

The Senior Art Exhibition is the capstone experience for graduating art majors. It serves as a final graduation requirement and an opportunity for seniors to present their creativity and craftsmanship in a professional manner.  Uhrig and Edwards are among the 6 students who will present their artwork in the exhibition.  Other students will be showcasing their creations in ceramics, commercial art and digital art. 

Uhrig will present the digital art she creates by manipulating photographic images of the sky.  Her digital print "Monsters" was selected for the Dean's Award at the 2013 Juried Student Art Show in the Coburn Art Gallery. 

Edwards will be showcasing three game applications he created, as well as prints of some of the graphic images used in the games. 

Edwards and Uhrig are both officers in the student chapter of the Association of Computing Machinery and the Upsilon Pi Epsilon Honorary for Computer Science students.  They also were both participants in this years' College of Arts and Sciences' Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Symposium (pictured above and below).  Above Edwards discusses how he used game theory, art principles and psychology to develop his own game apps.  He presented with fellow Computer Science senior Kenny Bogner.  Below, Marissa Uhrig discusses her art with College of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean, Mike Hupfer. 

The opening reception will be Thursday, April 24 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and is open to the public.  Regular gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 10am - 5pm, Saturday - Sunday, noon - 4pm.
