Digital Art Wall

Policy and Submission Procedure

The Matheson Learning Commons is equipped with a four-screen LCD video wall for the presentation of various forms of digital content. The Digital Art Wall is situated at the south entrance next to comfortable seating and group work areas, enriching the collaborative and lively atmosphere of the Learning Commons.

Submissions by Brock University students, faculty, staff and alumni are welcome. Projects related to the teaching, learning and research activities at Brock are encouraged.

The Digital Art Wall resides within a study/work area and the needs of users will take precedence.
