The inaugural Data Is ART Competition at the University of Virginia's School of Data Science has announced eight finalists whose works will be displayed in the School’s new home set to open late April. The finalists stood out among a competitive pool of participants for demonstrating a unique blend of creativity, innovation, and a deep understanding of the powerful intersection between data and art. There were more than 130 submissions to the competition from seven countries and four continents. The finalists include student submissions, a UVA alumnus, a UVA professor, and artists from as near as Charlottesville and as far as Budapest, Hungary. All finalists are invited to attend the Award Ceremony and Presentation on May 8.
