Susan Earl's "Circus on Pennsylvania Avenue" is on display as part of the exhibit,
Selection of Student Computer Art, on the 3rd Floor BMU Gallery. "Computer art is a young
approach to making art," says Ralph Silva Broussard, instructor in Computer Arts and the Department
of Art and Art History. Broussard's objective is to teach art first, then the program as part of the
artistic process. It's hard work. Broussard's students are challenged to come up with qualitative ideas
and convey them through creative imagery within the "sterile" environment of the computer.
Broussard's class invites students to experiment, marrying traditional artistic elements such as
watercolor, paintings, and prisma colors to the utility of a computer program like Photoshop. See the
future of art in this student exhibit.
