The Morlan Gallery hosts three interactive and generative art works in conjunction with Studio 300, Transylvania's first digital arts and music festival scheduled for Sept. 16-17. Unveiling the Painted Curtain, a reference to perhaps the very first interactive art (in the 5thC BC), features Toys' Opera by Yoni Niv, Elad Shniderman, and Adam Kendall; Higher Calling by Tim Polashek, and Forgetfulness by Ivica Ico Bukvic

Studio 300, a reference to Transylvania University's 300 North Broadway address, explores creative manifestations of technology through concerts and exhibitions of digital art and music. In its premier year, Studio 300 will feature concerts at the Mitchell Fine Arts Center, multimedia gallery exhibits in the Morlan Gallery, and audio and visual artworks at the BYTE Gallery, a digital arts kiosk located in the Mitchel Fine Arts Center. National, regional, and local musicians and artists will be participating in this two day arts festival with multiple events that are free and open to the public.
