About us

The KGMCA Arts & Technology Center supports academic programs across the college by providing students with access to the material and intellectual resources they need to fulfill their artistic vision. The Center empowers students by developing their understanding of technology and how it relates to their artistic process, promoting the independence and self-assurance they need to experiment and take artistic risks. In addition to providing students with practical, hands-on experience with the hardware and software they will encounter in their professional careers, the Center fosters collaborative relationships between students and mentors with the experience to help them overcome technological barriers. This happens in a common, cross-disciplinary environment where students from diverse academic programs are exposed to the work and processes of other artists, helping to encourage the flow of creative ideas across and beyond traditional academic boundaries.
