Autodesk recently launched, “Digital Canvas” an art exhibition showcasing a diverse range of works created by 82 Sketchbook artists. The show includes works created on both desktop and mobile devices and runs the full gamut from illustration and design to fine art fingerpaintings.
The show’s curator, Susan Murtaugh, and Autodesk hosted a private reception last Thursday. The reception included a show introduction from both Chris Cheung of Autodesk and Susan Murtaugh as well as an exciting and “top secret” presentation from Jay Shuster of Pixar. The reception was also attended by 19 of the artists, many of whom were also iAMDA members! (A great treat!) Check out more pics here.
The exhibit opens to the public today and is located at the Autodesk Gallery @ 1 Market Square in San Francisco. The Gallery is open Wednesdays only, 12 – 5 with a guided tour at 12:30pm. The exhibit is schedule to run up to 6 months.
If you’re in the area, you should drop on in. It’s really a fantastic show!

Innovation and Sustainability
The Autodesk Gallery at One Market is Platinum certified in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI) rating system. The Autodesk Gallery was only the second project in the state of California to earn a Platinum rating for LEED-CI. Design firms Anderson Anderson Architecture and HOK plus general contracting firm DPR Construction worked with Autodesk to renovate the space using an integrated project delivery (IPD) approach—an emerging business model in the building industry that allows the entire extended team to collaborate and efficiently drive projects toward their best outcomes.
