Inspired by music and each other, participants will build a group sculpture, engage in discussion, and learn how CVL will use Symbolic Modeling in the future. Basic building help will be provided for participants new to building / creating art in Second Life.
Participants will be able to interact with the varying media in CVL’s Music Library collection.
Participants will create a community sculpture to contribute to CVL’s new Music Library.
