From August 25 to September 5, the Centre Gallery at
the University of South Florida will host Rise In Kyoto by the graduate
students of the USF School of Architecture and Community Design 2014
Study Abroad Design Studio. Visitors to the gallery will encounter
technical architectural design with the significant influence of Japanese design.
Rise In Kyoto is an opportunity to experience two different entities:
Japan and architecture school. The exhibit will allow visitors to be
transported halfway around the world to the beauty of Japan’s natural
and built environment. Rise in Kyoto is also the culmination of many
weeks of work by the graduate students of USF SACD to design their own
built environment through models, plans, sections, graphics, and
sketchbook scans from the group’s month long study abroad trip in Japan.
The USF SACD 2014 Study Abroad Design Studio comprised of fifteen upper
level graduate students led by award winning Associate Professor
Michael Halflants. The studio spent a month immersed in Japanese
culture and used their gained knowledge to complete a design project.
This project not only relied on the understanding of design principles,
but also how the students chose to use cultural and customary knowledge
to create a space that would respond to the people’s needs in their
project site, the historic city of Kyoto.
Gallery’s opening reception for Rise In Kyoto, will be held on August
25th from 12 – 1 p.m. The closing reception will be held from 7 – 9
p.m. on Friday, September 5, in the Centre Gallery.

The Studio@620 and Echo Bridge Pictures invite you the
regional premier film screening of "Persistence of Vision", a
documentary from Director Kevin Schreck. The film chronicles the
struggle of animator Richard Williams ("Who Framed Roger Rabbit?") and
his decades long attempt to finish his masterpiece, an animated epic titled "The Thief and the Cobbler". There will be a post-screening discussion with the director via Skype connection.
"It may not be unusual for an animated film to take a few years to
finally come together, but The Thief and the Cobbler isn’t exactly a
typical animated film, and Richard Williams isn’t a typical animator.
His dedication to the art surpasses anyone else in the field, and his
work is a stunning example of what an animator can accomplish.
Unfortunately, nobody is really aware of just how amazing his work is,
since his film, as he envisioned it, remains unseen. Director Kevin
Schreck looks to change that with his documentary, Persistence of
Vision." -- William Brownridge, Toronto Film Scene
Admission $5 at the door.
