To all of our MISP colleagues, happy holidays. It has been a year of accomplishments for MISP/Muse, the partnership between the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Media Arts Program at New Mexico Highlands University, and especially for our talented students. We have exciting plans for the coming year, including the establishment of the Center for Cultural Technology, a Center of Excellence at the intersection of digital media and cultural content. Please take a look at a few of the recent highlights:
A student documentary team from NMHU Media Arts was hired by the Santa Fe Railyard Corporation to capture the memories and impressions of people who attended the opening festivities at the Railyard last September.
NMHU Media Arts students have created an amazing projection installation currently on view on the historic Las Vegas Plaza entitled "Almas de la Plaza/Spirits of the Plaza, New Mexico from Territory to Statehood." It is well worth the trek up to Las Vegas between now and the end of January to see it. Link to the promo video:

For those people planning a visit the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, don't miss our NMHU student-produced intro video in the orientation gallery for the exhibition "Georgia O'Keeffe and the Camera". The exhibition is on view through January. The video is also on the O'Keeffe's website, www.okeeffemuseum.org and on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb25_ZoWx1c&fmt=18.
On January 12th, the NMHU Media Arts/DCA partnership will launch the new Program in Interactive Technology (PICT). A class of fourteen students has been selected to produce all of the multimedia and interactive components for one of the inaugural exhibitions at the New Mexico History Museum, which is scheduled to open in May 2009. The exhibition is entitled "Fashioning New Mexico", and it draws on the museum's permanent collection.
