    LEMUR UNVEILS CUTTING EDGE ROBOTICS AND MUSIC LAB, TEACHING CENTER AND GALLERY
    Brooklyn's first art and technology complex, integrating a teaching
    center, performance space, gallery and robotics studio.
    The League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots (LEMUR) will unveil its
    new headquarters, LEMURplex, a cutting-edge high tech lab for music
    and robotics, where artistic expression and technology will join
    together.
    In two events on Sunday, June 11, 2006, LEMURplex will open its doors
    in Brooklyn, N.Y. We will host a Family Open House from 1 p.m. to 4
    p.m., and an evening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The media and
    the public are welcome to tour the facility, see LEMUR's musical
    robots in action and learn about classes and other offerings at the
    facility.
    The 3,000-square-foot complex will feature the latest in
    revolutionary technology for electronic art and music. LEMUR's new
    integrated shop will incorporate fabrication, software and
    electronics facilities in one location. Once open, LEMURplex will be
    uniquely equipped to become a leading international center for art,
    technology and robotics.
    The new space will be a major learning center for adults and children
    interested in the convergence of art and technology. Beginning in
    July, LEMURplex will hold classes on a variety of hi-tech subjects,
    including robotics (both for children and adults), interactive music
    and video software, electronics and computing for artists and much
    more. Some of New York's finest art and technology instructors will
    be teaching the classes, and they'll be on hand for the open house
    and reception.
    Beginning in the fall, LEMURplex will also host new musical
    performances and electronic art gallery shows. The site will be
    unique to New York in combining a gallery, performance space and
    teaching space in one location.
    LEMURplex is located at 461 3rd Ave, between 9th and 10th Streets,
    between the four vibrant neighborhoods of Park Slope, Carroll
    Gardens, Gowanus and Red Hook.
