LEA - Round 11 AiR Land Grant Artists

LEA22 Funky Junk by Carmsie Melodie
   The LEA is pleased to announce the eleventh round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full 
sim for six months on which to create and display their proposed projects:
          Lemonodo Oh
          Krystali Rabeni
          Subversive Vavoom
          Tahiti Rae
          Storm Septimus
          Giovanna Cerise
          Marcus Parrott
          Lorin Tone
          Art Blue
          Mac Kanashimi
          Ceakay Ballyhoo
          Dame Roxan
          Levi Ewing
          Diiar Resident
          Mahnong Guardian
          Michael Wexhome
          Bufera Resident
          Medora Chevalier

The LEA received 35+ 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, with all exhibits set to be open by end of October. Many will likely open sooner, though, so keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous ten 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!
