Tensilica Launches Campaign to Raise $20,000 for San Jose Ballet at DAC

Tensilica is launching a campaign to raise $20,000 for Ballet San Jose (California) at this year’s Design Automation Conference (DAC), July 24-27 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. By painting 10”x10” canvases, conference attendees will artistically contribute to giant murals, designed by German artist Lothar Krebs, that will be given to leading Silicon Valley companies that make substantial donations to Ballet San Jose. Ballerinas from Ballet San Jose will be assisting the artists in the Tensilica booth, number 3548, at the front of the North Hall.

"Every chip designer is, in many ways, an artist. So at DAC, we’re celebrating the artist within each of us by letting attendees paint parts of giant pictures that tell the story of chip design,” stated Chris Rowen, Tensilica’s president and CEO. “We’ll use this artwork to support another art – ballet. Ballet San Jose is an integral part of our Silicon Valley culture and deserves widespread support.”

During the 4-day DAC exhibition, attendees will be able to paint part of a different picture each day. To preview the pictures and find out more, see
