    WNM Instructor Hamilton Cline Art Show

    Our very own Hamilton Cline will be having his art work displayed in the AAU Gallery @ 435 Jefferson Gallery.  Check it out if you get a chance!


    Artist Reception December 3rd, 5:30-7:30pm



    If you’ve ever seen someone sketching people on a San Francisco bus or streetcar, it may well have been Hamilton Cline, and you may well have been immortalized in art. Portrait Quarterly is a collection of his latest and favorite works, selected from the pages of his book of the same name. He likes to work digitally on a Samsung Note 3, and wants to say “if you see someone drawing on the train in your city, it’s probably ok to say hi. I guess I can’t speak for everyone, but I would love to have a conversation with you, if I’m not too busy.” Yet another reason for embracing public transportation!

    "Help transform our self-driving cars into moving pieces of public art!

    As our prototype vehicles start to cruise the streets of Mountain View, California, we want you to make these cars your own. We’re inviting artists in California to submit art to be featured on our self-driving prototype vehicles for a month or more later this year. Imagine spotting your art on one of the world’s first self-driving cars!"
