MobileArtCon in New York City from September 30 – October 2, 2011. The conference will be held at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts and will serve as a creative retreat for the emerging community of visual artists, designers, musicians and film makers who produce professional, creative works on their mobile devices. The conference will feature several opportunities to try new apps and accessories, and create and collaborate with other artists ‘On the Move.’
MobileArtCon ‘On the Move’ will build around themes of “mobility,” “connectivity” and “collaboration,” enabling participants to explore the medium’s full creative range through hands-on workshops and woven group projects led both on-site and remotely. Though registration is required for the 2-day conference, the event kicks off with a public ArtCrawl on September 30, where artists and art lovers of all backgrounds are invited to join conference attendees in creating, capturing and sharing works inspired by multiple NYC locations. The event will also close with a multi-media display of works produced throughout the 2-day artist retreat. Attending artists and the public can expect to view and interact with an array of mobile digital artworks this year--from fingerpaintings and photography to music and video.
“This year, we want to showcase the advantages of creating on the mobile devices. The artist has the opportunity to carry a compact and efficient set of tools beyond the walls of his or her studio and create as the inspiration is streaming in. Co-Founder.
MobileArtCon is supported by some of the world’s leading art application and accessory makers including Artrage; Autodesk, creators of SketchBook; Taptrix, creators of Brushes and Inkpad for iPad; and Nomad Brush, creators of the first paintbrush stylus for touchscreen devices. MobileArtCon participants can look forward to talking to sponsors and trying out cutting edge mobile digital art software and products.
