an innovative Web first!

Every 2 years, starting in 1998, a pioneering artist that creates unique art and esthetic experience is selected by the museum as its Artist-In-CyberResidence. With support and encouragement of LVAM the artist works to provide new art for the Web's Cyberculture. Works are displayed and documented in this section of LVAM's Web site.

Our first Web based artist is Pygoya. Previous Internet works include our "acquired" work of art, the artist's e-art installation, Truly Virtual Web Art Museum. This Internet-Site Specific work is more than an installation as it incorporates the multimedia resources of the Web, traditional art media, and collaboration with other artists to insure its longevity as "living art through a creative communal process". Truly Virtual Web Art Museum includes the following feature attractions that require constant updating and management by the curatorial Webmaster of the project-

The Pygoya Webmuseum of Cyberart - Pygoya's own "cyberart" vrml exhibits
The Rave Webmuseum of Cyberart-
growing vrml collection of global digital art
The O'Carney Webmuseum Theater -
fine arts animation found on the Internet
The Cyberculture Library and Art Museum -
research on Web arts for artists
The Mausoleum Art Museum
-an online memorial resource/service for all artists
