Potsdam, NY, May 08, 2009 — Combining art and computer science isn't a new concept. But in the last few years, universities around the country have been taking digital arts more seriously. An art exhibit at Clarkson University will feature works by the school's first graduating class of digital arts and science majors. The Saturday night show in the Cheel Campus Center (9pm) will include animation, a documentary and product design. Todd Moe spoke with Dave Beck, Director of Clarkson's Digital Arts and Sciences Department, and some of the students involved in the exhibition. Beck says the program's objective is to combine artistic and scientific skills to develop creative talent with a strong technical background.
