SEI Pro details:
The Institute will be held June 8 to June 11, 2010, on the campus of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Comfortable dorm suites afford easy on-campus housing for SEI Pro students. UNM, with its extensive programs in visual culture, offers an exciting backdrop for learning.
While visiting Albuquerque, you may want to take a ride on the nearby Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway for a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding mountains. Or hop on the new light rail express train and visit neighboring Santa Fe. Check out Albuquerque’s Old Town, with great shopping and fine examples of historic adobe structures. Or visit the BioPark, which includes botanical gardens, an aquarium and the city zoo.
SEI Pro is sponsored by the Art Libraries Society/North America (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF). Find out more at http://www.vrafoundation.org/sei2010/.
