Dave Beck, assistant professor of communication and media at Clarkson University, is representing the school with his work in three different locations across the country this fall.

His artwork, including a digital 3D animation, printed images and a sculpture, is featured in Philadelphia, San Diego, and Green Bay, respectively. While each location is a separate exhibition, they all share a similar focus on the subject of digital art. greed

In San Diego, Beck's digital print has been chosen (from 3,000 entries representing 40 countries) as one of the 100 pieces to be featured in The Art of Digital Show. The curator/judge for this show is Neal Benezra, director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition is currently running now through November at the Lyceum Theater Gallery in the historic Gaslamp Quarter.

In Green Bay, 13 artists are exhibiting their work in a show titled Sculpture at the Edge. All of the work is situated at the edge of what is, and what is not, sculpture. Beck has both a digital print and a rapid-prototyped sculpture in the exhibition, which lasts from October through November. The exhibition, curated by Dr. Stephen Perkins, takes place at the University of Wisconsin -- Green Bay's Lawton Gallery.

Beck, a digital artist and sculptor, joined the Clarkson faculty this fall to help build one of the University's most recent additions to its curriculum -- the digital arts and sciences major.
