The University of Maine Intermedia MFA program is pleased to announce its annual open house exhibition titled “Converging Paths: Intermedia MFA Art Walk” on December 15, 2011 from 5:00 – 7:00pm.  This art walk will be centered in Lord Hall on the University of Maine campus in Orono and will included guided tours along an illuminated path to three other locations on the campus.

Converging Paths: Intermedia MFA Walk will be centrally located in Lord Hall where light refreshments will be served.  Two guided tours will start from Lord Hall beginning at 5:15pm and 6:15pm.  The tour guides will be MFA students and they will lead groups of guests through an illuminated path to Crossland Hall, Holmes Hall and Carnegie Hall.  Guests will be given maps that will include information on the artists being shown in each of the four locations. 288 luminaries provided by MFA student, Dee Clark, will light the pathways between the four buildings.
