As part of this year’s SIGGRAPH event—the Association for Computing Machinery’s yearly confab for the world’s top computer-graphics artists and creators of interactive technology, taking place July 30 – August 3 in Boston—the College is hosting a professional networking event for SVA alumni and industry guests. On Tuesday, August 1, 6 – 8pm, the rooftop deck of Boston’s Ritz-Carlton Boston Commons Hotel will be the place where SVA’s tech-driven artists get a chance to meet up with each other, as well as representatives from Sony Pictures Imageworks, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Rhythm & Hues Studio and others. Joseph Tuohy, director of development and alumni Affairs, says, “We had a great alumni event at SIGGRAPH in L.A. two years ago, and it made us want to take SVA’s Alumni Network to another area where we have a large concentration of alumni. It’s an excellent networking opportunity at one of the world’s premier technology events.”
There is a limited number of spaces still available for the event. If you’d like to attend, contact Kristi Davis at [email protected] or 212.592.2302 by Monday, July 31.
