Supernova at Momentum Festival Toledo

In a year filled with many exciting new developments, one of the most significant is a collaboration with the Arts Commission based in Toledo, Ohio, setting the stage to bring Supernova’s unique programming to a major public screen outside of Colorado for the first time at their annual Momentum festival. The partnership will introduce the singular international network of vanguard digital animators to a robust new audience through four distinct programs on Toledo’s massive public LED. The directive launches on the evening of September 19th with a 90-minute “Best of Supernova” reel, followed by a special program focusing on Great Lakes Region animators, curated by Toledo educator and Digerati commissioned artist Barry Whittaker. Supernova’s 2019 Competition program will then screen simultaneously to participants in both cities on Saturday September 21st, followed by a final selection of “Silent-Screen” animations. This exciting partnership with Momentum fully elevates Digerati’s focus on positioning digital motion-art as an exclusive art engagement, free for all to enjoy. Momentum delivers a varied selection of music and arts-based programming in a family friendly public setting along Toledo’s Maumee River waterfront, with a privately operated LED display serving as a key visual anchor.
