Students Showcase Media Arts Work at Winter Show December 7

Las Vegas, N.M – Highlands University media arts students will showcase their work at a winter show Dec. 7 with an opening reception at 5:30 p.m.

The show is the premiere exhibit in the Media Arts and Technology Department’s new state-of-art facility in the Trolley Building at 1183 San Francisco Ave. Tours will be given of the restored historic landmark during the show.

“We’ll have wonderful student work on display, from interactive media, to films, design, photography, professional installation projects and more,” said media arts professor Mariah Hausman, who coordinated the winter show. “We are really proud to share our stunning new facility and exemplary student displays with the community.”

The winter show features work from undergraduate and graduate media arts students. The film viewing portion of the show will be from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

“A show like this requires a Herculean effort by the entire department, and the energy is upbeat. We welcome visitors for a tour of our building. Just ask a media arts major or a faculty member to show you around,” Hausman said.

Highlands transformed a unique Las Vegas architectural landmark into a new home for media arts, with classes beginning in the 21,027-square-foot Trolley Building Aug. 17 on the first day of fall semester.
