An Art Show Downtown With a Difference

Here’s an oddball art show that might be worth your time. It features the work of a number of artists that will be projected on buildings in the center of town.

PROject proJECT is a free, one night public outdoor event of projection and light based art featuring the work of some well-thought-of artists. It is scheduled July 22, 9-midnight in downtown Roanoke. Projects will include interactive works, projection mapping, performance, video, film, slide shows and hand held projections.

The event will be held along Kirk Avenue from the Shadowbox to 2nd Street and to the parking lot on Church Street. One block along Kirk Avenue will be barricaded to define a pedestrian friendly event area.
Contacts are: Matt Ames; Christine Carr; Ralph Eaton; and Tif Robinette

The following are the projectors, the people creating the projections for PROject proJECT:

Dr. Simone Paterson of Virginia Tech; Christine Carr of Hollins; Ralph Eaton, an artist for 30 years; Amanda Agricola, a Hollins University graduate and part of a Roanoke collective Unicorn Stables Project; Mateo Marquez who studied photography at Instituto Yurupari; Tif Robinette who graduated from Hollins and is part of the Unicorn Stables Project; Matt Ames, a PhD student in instructional design and technology at Virginia Tech; Margaret Adams of the Corcoran College of Art and Design; Aaron Canipe, a student at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington; another Corcoran College student; Arlington photographer Allison Clarke; Wilson Butterworth of the Corcoran;  Susan Sterner, a former White House photographer who is working on series of documentaries; Sophia Eva Guerci, a Washington-based photographer; and Sophia Eva Guerci another Washington photographer.

    PROject proJECT is super happy to announce that Jeremy Kolosine / Receptors will take a break from his 2 year hiatus from live performance (and 4 years since he last played in Roanoke) to provide an ambient / improvisational micro-chipmusic backdrop using 8-bit/16-bit Nintendo GameBoy and DSi.
