Pioneer Lillian Schwartz to visit OSU
Lillian Schwartz will be on campus this week to attend a reception in her honor celebrating the exhibition of some of her work at OSU. Schwartz is best known for her pioneering work in the use of computers for what has since become known as computer-generated art and computer-aided art analysis, including graphics, film, video, animation, special effects, Virtual Reality and Multimedia. Her work was recognized for its aesthetic success and was the first in this medium to be acquired by The Museum of Modern Art. In 2005 Schwartz donated her completes archives to Ohio State's Rare Books and Manuscripts Library, which has organized an exhibition of her work at Ohio State's Faculty Club (181 South Oval Mall), on view from November 1 to December 14. Lillian Schwartz: Selected Works will be shown Tue, Nov 13, 2007 at 7:00PM at the Wexner Film/Video Theater.
