Announcements:

• Scott Wade, the Dirty Car Artist, will be in Carrollton today through Tuesday, October 28. UWG's Ingram Library, Phi Kappa Phi, and the School of the Arts are proud to sponsor this artist who creates amazingly detailed and shaded images rendered on dirty car windows. Known internationally as “The Dirty Car Artist,” Scott's work has been seen on television in over 20 countries, on blogs and in print media throughout the world. Considered a form of “reverse graffiti,” his ephemeral art has been seen in galleries, at fairs and festivals, and utilized for green advertising campaigns and corporate events in the US and several other countries since he first developed this unusual art form, ten years ago. Scott will do one art piece at the Carrollton High School Homecoming game (setting up near the concessions area) today starting at 6 p.m. On Monday, October 27, starting around noon, Scott will do another piece on campus on the Nissan Leaf provided by Scott Evans. On Tuesday, October 28 at 1 p.m. Scott will do an Artist Talk at Ingram Library on UWG's campus for any who wish to learn more about his unique art, his philosophy on art and how we can promote environmentally sustainable art.
