The 19th annual Viz-a-GoGo was held May 3-5. This student-run event showcased the work of students in the Master of Science in Visualization program. 2012 marked the third year the event took place in Downtown Bryan. The week-long festival began with an art exhibition open to the public in the Old Federal Building. Former students and members of the department’s advisory board donated items (including movie memorabilia) for a silent auction. The purpose of the auction was to raise funds for student scholarships. On Friday and Saturday an animation screening was presented at the historic Palace Theater. Before each show began, Department Head, Tim Mclaughlin announced the residents of the PIXAR, ILM, and DreamWorks’ scholarships. Thanks to the efforts and donations of former students working at the respective studios, scholarships were awarded to current students who produced the best work showcased in the Viz-a-GoGo screening.
