VISITING ARTIST DVDs
The VRC maintains a collection of DVDs from the department’s Visiting Artist Program, available for 3 business-day checkout to faculty and students within the Department of Art and Art History (students must present their Buff OneCards). These include the artists’ public lectures and the What Follows… interviews series. DVDs are not available until the semester following an artist’s visit.
VISITING ARTIST VIDEOS IN THE VRC’S ONLINE DIGITAL COLLECTION
The VRC makes its Visiting Artist video collection available in streaming format to all CU students, staff, and faculty via our LUNA digital collection. Streaming videos are not available until the semester following an artist’s visit.
Accessing streaming videos
Note: We are in the process of moving our videos from one streaming server to another. During this time, there will be two methods for accessing videos, depending on which server a particular video is on. See instructions in step 4 below.
For copyright reasons, access is limited to current faculty, students, and staff at the University of Colorado.
1. Go to our LUNA site.
2. Log in with your IdentiKey username and password, and select the Art and Art History Visual Resources Collection from the list of collections on the left.
3. To find videos from the Department’s Visiting Artist Program:
- VA lectures: keyword search for visiting artist lecture
- What Follows interviews: keyword search for what follows
- OR, enter an artist’s name in the keyword search box
4. To view videos:
A. If the thumbnail image looks like this, use the following (old) method:
i. Click on the thumbnail image, then click on the View Video link at the upper left of the page.
ii. In the new streaming server window, log in with the username “boulder” and password “boulder”.
iii. IMPORTANT: There is a glitch with our old streaming server where videos do not always begin automatically streaming after you enter the boulder/boulder username and password. If this happens, simply click the View Video link again; this should launch the video in the streaming server window.
B. If the thumbnail image looks like this, use the following (new) method:
i. Adobe Flash Player must be enabled on your browser to view these videos. To download Flash, find instructions for enabling Flash on various browsers, or verify whether Flash is installed on your computer, see Adobe’s website: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html.
ii. Click on the thumbnail image, then click on the play icon in the center of the page.
iii. If Flash is enabled, the video should launch within the LUNA viewer window.
