The CoSA Digital Arts Conservatory presents CODE RED, a 3D exhibit, on Thursday at Coronado High School’s Black Box Theater from 6-8 p.m.
Guests are invited to wear Chroma glasses to experience the dramatic 3D effects and “pop” of the color red, exploring themes like film noir, apocalyptic, and sci-fi.
“Anything with red on a dark background will ‘come at you’ and appear 3D with these glasses,” said Anna Woerman, digital arts instructor. “It’s a hands-on, interactive show.”
Guests will engage with the software, explore hung and digital works, and chat with student artists.
The students have been working on CODE RED since November, according to Woerman.
“I’m always impressed by our students’ creativity when they are working within the constraints of a specific prompt,” said Woerman. “Students have been continuously checking their works in progress with the chroma glasses, making sure their colors pop, and adjusting accordingly.”
CODE RED is a student-produced show. The students have done all of the marketing, producing, and promotion of the show, even building the physical sets for each booth.
Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) is a San Diego County public school arts conservatory, home to 200 scholar artists. The program provides pre-professional arts education to students from Coronado and San Diego, who are admitted after a competitive application/audition process.
