First in the Berkshires

We are delighted to host the first BeCreative Bar Camp with the good folks at Berkshire Creative on Friday, May 1 starting at 5:30 PM.

While there will be a cash bar available, the event is focused on creativity not drinking or gymnastics.

The name “BarCamp” is a playful allusion to the event’s origins, with reference to the hacker slang term, foobar which is a common placeholder name for something with an unknown value: BarCamp arose as a spin-off of Foo Camp, an annual invitation-only participant driven conference hosted by open source publishing luminary Tim O’Reilly.

Stay after Bar Camp for the Cuban Dance party in the Hunter Center. Tickets just $13.50 for Bar Camp participants.

New LeWitt Website has Launched

John McAlister our Director of Information Technology reports:

On Friday we went live with a new Sol LeWitt wall drawing segment on our website (in “Beta” format meaning the permanent web presence will come at a later time). We want to share the progress and give a sneak peak into the process of making these magnificent drawings.

There are two ways to see the wall drawings on the website—in a grid layout or via a floor plan of Building 7 (where the wall drawings are being created). The grid offers you a matrix of thumbnails so you can go directly into the detail of the drawing. The floor plan breaks out the three floors of Building 7 so you can see their physical placement throughout the retrospective. Remember there are a total of approximately 27,000 square feet that house the wall drawings or 9,000 square feet per floor! Once into the detail page look for a time lapse video capturing the making of certain wall drawings. Spectacular! (Note: not all the drawings are being captured but a good sample is underway.) Of course to find out more about this great endeavor please visit the About page.

I’d like to personally thank Jack Turner and Adam Grossman for their brilliant technological wizardry in putting together the website and the capturing/editing of the time lapse videos. Check them out at http://jackadam.net/.

Kudos gentlemen!
