'Fabled' on Display in Student Union Gallery
Art professors Heather Freeman and Jeff Murphy created the works in the exhibit “Fabled: Flederhund and Other Stories” on display in the Student Union Art Gallery through Friday, Aug. 7.
Some of the images were for their book “Flederhund.” Written for children, “Flederhund” centers on a young boy's encounters with both imaginary creatures and real places as he searches for his missing dog in Central Europe.
Freeman, an associate professor of digital media, teaches digital print, animation, video, installation and drawing. She holds a bachelor’s degree in fine art and German studies from Oberlin College and an M.F.A. in Studio Art from Rutgers University. Murphy, who received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Ohio University and an M.F.A. from the University of Florida, is an associate professor of art. His classes include digital imaging, interactive design, photography, video and animation.
New Interactive Campus Map Launches
On July 15, the UNC Charlotte Facilities Management Department launched a new campus resource aimed at helping faculty, staff, students and visitors explore the campus.
The facilities management information systems team, using Google Maps as a building block, has created an interactive map that offers a wealth of information that individuals can access even before they come to campus.
"Users can search for buildings, parking, dining and information on accessibility and emergencies and more, and they will have live access to campus shuttle information to more easily take advantage of these services," said Michael Peddycord, a GIS application developer with facilities management information systems. According to Peddycord, the new map was developed with mobile devices, such smartphones and tablets, in mind. Individuals can share their location when using the map and can obtain turn-by-turn navigation to points across campus.
