LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) has a LOT going on in SL lately. I previously blogged about Rebeca Bashly's "Inferno" which is a must see explore in the LEA area (scroll down a few posts for info, SLurl, pics and video)
LEA also recently announced LEA has negotiated with Linden Labs to make available twenty new regions for the arts in Second Life. Four regions for exhibitions curated from LEA sandbox art, and two will be allocated through a land rush. Fourteen will be allocated by application. These regions will be awarded to selected artists for a period of five months. After the completion of five months those regions will be transferred to a new set of awardees. Recipients can be considered for a second endowment of five months.
Yesterday opened "The Path", an immersive collaborative exhibit that is a must see in LEA (see below) and today is the opening of "Interact" on LEA4 (see below) and also "Survey of Hyperformalists" on LEA1. LEA 3 hosts a twice weekly speed build and LEA3 continues to host Monday night Avatar games which I have previously blogged and participated in and continue to enjoy attending. There is a lot more going on so check out the LEA web site here for more information: http://lindenarts.blogspot.com/ or direct link here: LEAWebsiteHere.

There is so much I could say about this but you must just visit, take the notes and enjoy yourself.

"OPENING SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2 PM PDT
On LEA4: InterACT!, curated by L1Aura Loire/Lori Landay
Opening October 15, 2 pm PDT
Virtual art can invite, or even insist, that you interact with it. The artists in this exhibition cleverly and creatively make art out of interactions between data, objects, actions, and people within and beyond the virtual world in a stunning array of installations and experiences that stretch the possibilities of virtual art. Expect the unexpected, and click whenever you can. #interactLEA. Again, so much to say, but just visit.
