RICHARDSON – Motherboard is a new sculpture installation that was created by the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication (ATEC) Lightsquad from the University of Texas at Dallas and will be on display at the Charles W. Eisemann Center for Performing Arts Mar. 7-29. 

The large art display is part of a multiyear, interactive arts experience that is funded by the Eisemann Edge Endowment Fund, which was started with a $250,000 donation from community benefactors and civic leaders, Ann and Charles Eisemann.

A joint initiative of the City of Richardson, the Eisemann Center and ATEC, the program is intended to leverage a wide array of creative abilities and technological platforms that will engage new audiences, enabling them to explore the arts and to build on the Richardson community’s distinctive high-tech heritage.

“We very much like the goal of continuing to progress and lead the arts toward new and innovative discoveries as technology reshapes our senses, perceptions and reality. We think this will help grow new artistic leadership and create something new that will last into the future and help the arts innovate over time,” said Ann and Charles Eisemann.

The artwork highlights the past, present and future of the City of Richardson as a tech hub. Motherboard involved a lot of work that was done outside of the classroom by two professors from ATEC, one staff member, 10 students and five alumni.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and during all public events. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Visit for more information on exhibits and events.
