Austin Peay State University LogoIn this technological age, art doesn’t have to take a back seat. In fact, the Internet and new forms of digital media are providing more opportunities for artists to create in the 21st century.

A new exhibit opening Aug. 31 at Austin Peay State University’s Trahern Gallery will highlight some groundbreaking work in this young artistic medium. The show, “Upgrade! Tennessee: New Media from Across the State,” will feature artists working with technology from across Tennessee.
