FROM VICKI URIS
A Shout Out to Lindsay LaPointe, whose Videodance mid-term was accepted into the International Day for Sharing Life Stories Screenings! The Jury wrote:
"Congratulations! Your digital story has been selected to screen during the International Day for Sharing Life Stories at the Wexner Center Film / Video Theater on Friday May 16th at 9:30 am. Yours was the only real experimental piece we chose that did not unfold as a traditional narrative and we are delighted to include this piece in our lineup. We hope you and your colleagues will join us for this exciting presentation!"

Odie's Autism Walk

I am happy to announce that Jenai Cutcher and Annie Kloppenberg have been awarded Alumni Grants for Graduate Research and Scholarship (AGGRS) for support of their MFA projects next year. This is a real feather in their caps, and good recognition for promising research projects! Thanks to Project Advisors Vicki Uris and Bebe Miller!
