Exhibit Opening on UK Island

Please join us for the opening of our newest exhibit on University of KY Island, featuring the “Real Life” and “Second Life” work of the University of Kentucky’s Teaching & Academic Support Center – Graphics & Multimedia Production team. This group creates graphics, animations, and digital images for courses and research projects. The team has also been working in Second Life, creating a virtual anatomy lab for use by students in our Medical Center. You’ll find the exhibit in the virtual W.T. Young Library on the island.

The exhibit features the work of Hazzard Messerchmitt (in real life, he’s Matt Hazzard of the TASC-GMP team).

The opening begins at 2:30pm Eastern Time (that’s 11:30pm in Second Life time). For more information, visit the UK Island blog.
