CMU Fine Arts to show on PNC Park Jumbtron April 15 2008, Warhol Museum

Carnegie Mellon University has found a massive canvas for their public art: the Jumbotron at PNC Park. The students and faculty present "Caught Looking," an exhibition of new, one-minute video artworks, to be shown on PNC Park's massive Jumbotron Tuesday, April 15 starting at 7 p.m. The Warhol museum is also presenting a video as well (which does not include the work of CMU students, which was clarified as of April 15 by CMU). The event is free and open to the public. The Warhol Museum will host an after party from 9 to 11 p.m. at the museum.

"PNC Park is a unique venue for video art. You don't typically expect to see art at the baseball stadium, but it's an amazing experience,"said Jill Kraus Visiting Assistant Professor of Art Christopher Sperandio. "As far as we know, no other art school in the country is using an 85''x 35'' high-definition screen as a venue for student and faculty art work."
Sperandio and his students have collaborated twice with Lamar Outdoor Advertising in placing students' Pittsburgh-centric public artwork on 11" by 24" billboards along Pittsburgh's roadways.
