Andres Montenegro Receives Research Travel Grant

Andres Montenegro, assistant professor of computer animation, received a New Frontiers Travel Exploration Grant for $3,000.

The grant will support a trip to Mantua, Italy, for the visual study of the frescos painted by Andrea Mantegna in the Camera degli Sposi at The Pallazzo Ducale Di Mantova, Lombardy, Italy.

The research trip is part of his work to deconstruct and translate the illusionistic space in the fresco into a contemporary virtual/augmented reality visualization prototype.
