I'm bored. Grignano is fairly empty. I have 1600 prims.

Pretend I built a grand, multi-level, ultra-gorgeous building, and had residents plaster the walls with art. Photographs and actual paintings, mostly. All user-made, no fake Monets floating around causing a ruckus.

Any interest?

Anyone? Bueller?

Yes. Would you be able to save a few prims (within reason) for prim sculptures?

Possibly a small amount, littered about the rooms. Nothing too huge or fancy, however.

Your bored and I'm trying to move (in RL)!! If you want to make an art gallery Lordfly, why don't you work on the one I'm trying to make (see sig). hahaha.. You know how much I love your designs, and the last place you built for me is on the spot where I'm going to want the gallery. Dunno if you would be willing to let me hire you again. But let me know! :D

Very cool idea Lordfly. I have an RL art gallery or RL artwork made by SLers in Indigo. We should get a few people to do a few different themes and get an art museum set of landmarks going together! Let me know what you think.

Anyone with RL artwork they'd like displayed, just ping me in world. I expanded the area and am awaiting submissions! :-)

Regards,

-Flip

I'd build your art gallery for nothing Pendari. :)

I loaned out a skyscraper in Sistiana to have an art museum built, and it is now 3/4 finished and the person abandoned the project, so I am not sure what to do with it, but it is a shame to let the space (and the work done so far) go to waste.

Well.

We've got my already-existing art museum (in grignano, launa fauna's), cristiano's, pendari's making one...

How did I miss all that? :P

We should combine our efforts and make one gigantic, overwhelming artistic experience. the Uber-Art MegaMuseum!

This would be great! I'd love to see it in the city sims (of course). :D

haha! At the very least, I'll be more than happy to share landmarks to other Art Galleries once mine is up! We could do one of those "Tour Guide" thingies but have it strictly for the galleries!! :D

more art - more galleries!! i came across a few 'deserted' ones while flying around one day... some neat stuff; didn't 'invest', but would love to... and also make some of my own, we'll see... :)

don't know what you've got in mind, but i thought... oooooo, it would be fantastic to have a sort of parisian gallery district, with landscaping and quaint little streets and parks...

There's also a gallery of RL art by SL residents in Aqua :) Can there be such a thing as too much art around? Methinks not!

I have a gallery in Nipegon named 'Creative Creek'. It doesn't attract nearly the number of people that a good old fashioned game of TRINGO does but I enjoy it anyway. I presently have some of my work at Myestro Gallery and at Bradder and Petewyrm's River Walk. I would love to see and be involved in a joint effort :)

There's also the Crescent Moon Museum in Montmartre and The Riverwalk (forget which sim it's in).

*looks up* Oh, Seifert beat me to the plug. ^_^;

Well I'm all for art, and I'd be more than happy to display my work in a gallery/museum setting.

Please let me know where to hang my stuff!

Hope you won't mind if I hang about to see what others hang up as well! :D

What would be really cool......
08-02-2005 06:38
If we could tp from one gallery to another - like have a RL Art crawl...

wine, cheese, meet the artists, and be able to go directly from one to the next....

(sorry, no I do not have roam)

:p It'd be great if there was a coffeeshop connected to the main bulding. And a place nearby to buy sweaters and berets.

But seriously, it would be great to see a big, art museum, I've seen lots of tiny ones before... Something to give the community something to do. Would there be different shows? Or just most of the same stuff all the time? Just wondering... Art themed events would be great...

Very cool!

I started the Linden Gallery of Resident Art primarily to simply raise awareness of art in SL. I've got a notecard dispenser at the gallery with a list of known Resident-run galleries, and a suggestion box where people can submit information. Please let me know about any such Resident-run galleries and I'll add 'em to the list to help more people find them all!

yes, i even have a mini-art walk in awa (just my, chip's and toast's RL work for now)... but that isn't a long-term installation.

LF - how would you feel about having a section for art history too? Like I would be willing to curate an exhibit on Cezanne or Giacometti.

I've always thought SL would be a wonderful medium for a real art museum (historical art) because of the way you can interact with space, sound, text, and visuals... better than the web... but this would require a fair amount of land and prims for both the building and the art.

I always meant to submit a non-profit proposal to LL on this, but never got around to it.

An art gallery would be a wonderful idea. Maybe resident art...
