Videotect 2 at the Walker Art Center

Vtect2train.jpgA free screening at the Walker Art Center tonight will showcase submissions to Videotect 2, an annual video competition organized by Architecture Minnesota to bring more voices and more creativity into public debates about key built-environment issues. This year's issue was sustainable transportation and its enhancement through design.

An online vote for the competition took place February 1-10. The top vote-getters will be screened and voted on again tonight (March 1), with the winner taking home the $2,000 Viewers' Choice Award. Entries will also be judged tonight by Minnesota Public Radio arts reporter Marianne Combs, Minneapolis transit-development director David Frank, Walker Art Center film and video curator Sheryl Mousley, and architect Jeffrey Scherer, FAIA, of Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle for a $2,000 Grand Prize winner and four $500 Honorable Mentions.
