Mothership Connection is the Art and Art History Departmentís Alumni Show curated from the Alumni Slide Registry at the CRL. This ambitious exhibition features internationally known alumni, national artists from all three coasts as well as hot home-brewed art stars. The show features Albert Bosquez in memoriam, Christine Catsifas, Andy Coolquitt, Jonathan Faber, Martha Gannon, Keith Herzig, Erik Parker, Patrick Phipps, Kyle Riedel, David Schafer, Jason Singleton, Kal Spelletich, Jill Thrasher and David Waddell.

Not all of the amazing artists that sent images for the Alumni Slide Registry could be a part of this exhibition. We are very sorry about that. To rid the world of some injustice, we are currently putting the registry on-line and planning a show for next year based on what we have received. To learn more about the registry and how to become a part of it, please visit our website: http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~crlab/
