THOUSAND OAKS, CA - The CLUFest 2014 exhibit will showcase California Lutheran University students’ best multimedia creations and experimentation with Google Glass and a camera-carrying drone hovercraft.

“Journey Through Color” will be on display from April 25 through May 17 in the Kwan Fong Gallery of Art and Culture. CLUFest recognizes the university’s most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers and computer artists.

A reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, May 4. The event will feature demonstrations of student experimentation with Google Glass and a drone hovercraft with a GoPro camera attachment. CLU is a test site for Google Glass, a wearable computer similar to a pair of glasses that displays and projects images and video and communicates with the Internet through voice commands.

Additional drone and Google Glass demonstrations will be presented at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, May 1, 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 6, and 11 a.m. Saturday May 10.

Project managers are Gustavo Youngberg from Sun Valley and Kevin Tanner from Santa Clarita. Design coordinators are Amanda Johnson from Van Nuys and Jennifer Charles-Funk from Las Vegas.
