AIGA Portfolio 1-on-1 Scholarship Opportunity

The Digital Media Arts department is pleased to announce a competition for scholarships to Portfolio 1-on-1, an annual student mini-conference produced by AIGA Minnesota. Share your work with design industry professionals, make new connections, and get valuable feedback and advice on becoming a stronger candidate for internships and jobs within the creative fields.

This year’s event takes place on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, from 9am-6pm at Muse Event Center (downtown Minneapolis).

More details on the event are available at AIGA’s website:
“Before you start applying to jobs get a gut-check from experienced creative professionals at Portfolio 1-on-1. This design-centric conference will give you the opportunity to present your work in mock interviews for constructive feedback and valuable connections. You’ll also have the opportunity to tour agencies and studios, hear from panelists, attend hands-on workshops, and network with other students.”

DMA faculty will review all applications and select scholarship recipients. Up to three scholarships may be awarded. Scholarship covers one free year of AIGA membership ($50 value) and $75 Portfolio 1-on-1 registration fee; students are responsible for registering and for transportation to/from event.

Open to all DMA majors, but the event will be most applicable to those with portfolios focused on graphic design, web design, animation, and/or illustration.
– Must have completed junior portfolio review.
– Portfolio can be submitted as a freestanding website (include URL below), or as a PDF (upload to Google Drive, then turn on “Link sharing” to generate URL).

Sound & Soundings October 29, 7:30-8:30pm

The range of a bell, inscribed in a classical perspective of harmony, served to define a territory that was haunted by the notion of limits as well as the threat of those limits being transgressed.
–Alain Corbin, Village Bells
Auditory communities are created when we all hear (or are forced to hear) the same sounds. Inclusive and excluding, such communities are formed or fractured, coalesced or disrupted by our ever-increasing use of portable electronic devices. In the era of bluetooth speakers and earbuds, we find ever more complicated ways to reach out or to close off, both positions fundamentally made possible through technological engagements. Sound is social; it can also be a weapon. Silence is golden; it can also sunder. Somewhere between these poles we all function. Tonight students and faculty in two classes that deal with sound in very different ways come together to think through its implications.

Midway Public Art Mini Grants

What: The Midway Public Art Working Group (MPAWG) is allocating $1,000 for mini-grants of up to $250 to fund community-led public art projects in the Hamline-Midway neighborhood. Projects can be permanent, temporary, or ephemeral. MPAWG is interested in supporting work that engages thematically with the Hamline-Midway neighborhood, its residents, and its past, present, or future. MPAWG may be able to provide logistical support, such as information about completing a Paint the Pavement project or locating an artist to do a garage door mural, depending on the request. Consider public art to be art in its broadest sense, encompassing any medium, that is available for consumption in public spaces.

When: All projects must be completed by the end of 2018

Who: Anybody is eligible to apply.

DeadlineMay 31, 2018.

Application Process: Please provide a detailed description of the project, along with plans to execute the project, and how the money will be spent, and email it to jonathan[at]midwaymurals.com. Applications can be sent in written, audio, or video formats, and in any language.

Cory Quirk Sound Installation Dec 18 & 19

Hamline student Cory Quirk is opening a sound art installation titled Nature & Urbanity for two evenings to display some of the audio he’s recorded over the past year at Hidden Falls Regional Park. The park is of particular interest being that it is located on the St. Paul bank of the Mississippi and is constantly blanketed with the booming drones from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The project seeks to distill the sonic experience of a city park apart from the visual one to document the mixture of sounds we consider to be natural with those we consider to be noisy and synthetic.
