“Nathan Mattimoe, a former art student, who is part of the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo and works with the Toledo Botanical Garden, approached me and asked if we would be interested in working with the Toledo Botanical Garden on a projection-based event,” said Barry Whittaker, UT assistant professor of art.

Students’ works will be displayed through projection installations during the event.

“There will be two main sites, one mixed with work from film students and with animations from the Art Department, and another highlighting a multidisciplinary project that involves creating an educational pilot episode for WGTE,” Whittaker said.

The multidisciplinary project involves classes from the Communication, Theatre and Film, and Art departments and is still in development.

Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased here.
