LEA Art Sandbox Opens Friday May 20!

I'm happy to announce the opening of the LEA Art Sandbox on 5/20 at noon! Come by and check it out!

The Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) exists to help people understand and create virtual art in Second Life. Therefore, the LEA Art Sandbox exists for the same purpose, by giving Residents space to build and play and experiment with the tools of Second Life …. for art. :-)

LEA Art Sandbox Building Areas

The LEA Art Sandbox is located on the LEA5 region, which is split into the following parcels:
  • General Sandbox Area: This is what people think of when they think of a sandbox. A big area of virtual land with a relatively long autoreturn time.
  • Self-Curating Gallery Area: The purpose of this area is to provide Second Life artists a two-week place to rez their work, and to provide other Residents a place to browse the works of Second Life artists.
  • Building Resource Area: This area contains freebie build tools, LDPW and Torley texture collections, and so forth. It is the landing point, and visitors can get the sandbox rules and policies from the kiosk at the landing point location.
In all areas, scripting will be turned off for non-group Residents. Residents who join the land group can run scripts. The group is open to the public, so anyone can join. Just search on “LEA Art Sandbox” to find the group.
