Four student teams, comprised of a total of 10 to 12 individuals from the College of Computing and Informatics, will participate in a regional hackathon set for Saturday and Sunday, July 12 - 13, in the PORTAL building at UNC Charlotte.
The University is hosting one of several such events being held worldwide; the goal is to expose technology innovators and the financial services community to one another. Hackathon organizers are founders of "The Money Event" (TME) held during Super Mobility Week in Las Vegas Sept. 9 - 11. TME sessions focus on innovations in commerce, banking, payments and financial services in general.
According to hackathon organizers, their mission is to demonstrate the power of open platforms and mobile technologies in fostering innovations in financial services.
Works by three artists comprise "CHROMA: lyrical lines and compulsive color," which opens Saturday, July 12, at the Projective Eye Gallery in UNC Charlotte Center City.
The display will feature color-soaked abstraction in oil paintings by Linda Luise Brown, acrylics and collage works by Marge Loudon Moody and the intricate surface design on ceramic objects and installations by Greg Scott. One of the highest-selling genres, abstract art is often one of the most misunderstood, too.
An opening reception for "CHROMA" will be from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, July 12, and it will feature a performance by pianist Dan Knight and conversations with the artists. The exhibit will run through Wednesday, Sept. 24.
