LEA Announces Round 6 AIRS!

Meilo Minotaur - Round 5 "Moving Islands" LEA20
The LEA is pleased to announce the sixth round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full sim 
for five months on which to create and display their proposed projects:

Maya Paris

Yooma Mayo

Tyrehl Byk

Glyph Graves

Livio Korobase

Solkide Auer

Mac Kanashimi

Storm Septimus

Eupalinos Ugajin

Pixels Sideways

Xineohp Guisse

Mimesis Monday

Tansee Resident

Sniper Siemes

Canary Beck

Tomm Pye

Lorin Tone

SodaGnome Resident

Nexuno Thespian

TheRealKarenEliot Resident

The LEA received 40+ high-quality applications, and it was a difficult decision, but those selected submitted outstanding proposals that represent a diverse range of virtual art. While a handful are artists returning for a second round, the majority will be exhibiting at the LEA for the first time. Projects range from full-sim immersions, to innovative builds geared specifically for multimedia works such as sound and machinima projects.

Artists will have up to four months to build their projects (though many have suggested they will be completed sooner), with all exhibits set to be open by end of May. Many will likely open sooner, though, so keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous five rounds of LEA land grant artists-in-residence have resulted in some truly exceptional works, and we anticipate this next group to be just as fantastic. Congratulations to all the artists, we can’t wait to see your vision!
