Pioneers ask SIGGRAPH Attendees to Make It Right

With SIGGRAPH set for next week in New Orleans, a group of computer graphics professionals is asking members of the creative community to donate to the Make It Right Foundation, which benefits survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

The SIGGRAPH Pioneers Group, which includes scientists, engineers, artists and industry professionals active in computer graphics, has adopted a house being built by the foundation and is seeking monetary donations of any amount to help out.

"We have had wonderful experiences in New Orleans for the SIGGRAPH conference,” said Kathleen Maher, VP, Jon Peddie Research and a member of the SIGGRAPH Graphics Pioneers. “However, the devastation Katrina left in its wake is unfathomable, and unless you’ve seen it firsthand, it’s really hard to imagine. The SIGGRAPH Pioneers encourage the graphics community to band together and help support the victims of Hurricane Katrina by helping New Orleans return to its former glory.”

Make It Right is a collaboration between actor Brad Pitt, Graft Architects, Cherokee Gives Back and William McDonough + Partners to build 150 energy efficient and storm resistant homes in the lower ninth ward of New Orleans.

Progress on the group’s adopted house — which can be seen at

— will be announced at the show.
