"This will be a unique cultural experience and with some great art," says festival organizer Peter V. Stark. "The festival will feature video games, virtual reality, animation, or digital art." Stark is a senior digital arts & sciences major from Rome, N.Y.

Along with the art and interactive setups, there will also be several speakers and seminars, including an animation seminar with Bassam Kurdali on Friday, April 11, at 6 p.m. in the Cheel Student Senate Rooms; a game seminar with Philip Tan on Sunday, April 13, at 11 a.m. in the Cheel Student Senate Rooms; and an augmented reality workshop with Andrea Haenggi on Tuesday, April 15, from 6-9 p.m. at SUNY Potsdam's Dunn Dance Theatre. splotch

The Digital Arts & Sciences Program is a newly designed major at Clarkson University, which spans the boundaries between the sciences and the arts. Students take advantage of programs in math, computer science, digital arts, and communication and media. The program's objective is to combine artistic and scientific skills and interests and develop creative talent, with a strong technical foundation.

Clarkson University crosses the boundaries of disciplines, nations and cultures in order for discovery, engineering innovation and enterprise to come together. As a result, faculty and graduates grasp the full impact of their calling, direct their research to the world's pressing issues and lead with confidence and distinction. One in seven alumni is already a CEO or other senior executive. Located in Potsdam, N.Y., just outside the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, Clarkson is home to 3,000 students preparing for rewarding careers through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, science, and health sciences, as well as unparalleled outdoor recreation and life experiences beyond the classroom.
