The Cube Art Project, a digital arts initiative for the people of Nebraska, opens a new show on the Cube May 18th from 6-8PM.

Opening remarks will be made by Mayor Chris Beutler at 6:45 PM with award winners announced shortly after.

This year’s selected artists hail from Europe and the US with selections made by award winning artist Sean Capone. Capone is a New York City based video artist with work in the MOMA who has recently completed residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art. Winning artists will be revealed at The Cube Art Project 3r d biannual event and online at www.cubelincoln.com

Michael Burton, an assistant professor of practice at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and curator/ director of the Cube Art Project has reached out to game developers, high level artists, and performers to create media objects for the Cube. This year Burton is working with developers BuiltbySnowmen, creators of Alto’s Odyssey, to screen both an environmental sequence of days in Alto’s world and later this summer to reveal a version of Alto that Railyard guests can play on the Cube live.

Lincoln Partners for Public Art Development is overseeing the project and the rest is (going to make) history, as Lincoln steps into the international spotlight with our one-of-a-kind art venue – The Cube!
