On Monday, December 3, 2018, BRIC will hold a screening of work by the 12 BRIC Media Arts Fellows. The screening is a culmination of the year-long fellowship opportunity, which provides visual artists with the skills and resources needed to incorporate multimedia to their artistic practice, via BRIC's Media Education classes and facilities. The work presented provides a glimpse into how these artists have used media in their art. We asked a few of the 2018 Fellows to share their thoughts on the experience and impact the fellowship had on their work.
