UTC PMA Faculty Lewis, Trowbridge, and Westbrook have joined forces with Media artists all over Tennessee to launch a node of UPGRADE!, an international network of gatherings concerning art, technology, culture. "My hope to to have a rotating series of media/art projects and programs, as well as the sort of discourse that UPGRADE! will generate regarding teaching in these rapidly expanding disciplines. I also want to thank Barry and Kell at APSU for doing all the work!" says Westbrook.
