The Las Vegas Art Museum is pleased to establish its presence on the World Wide Web. The "alternative" nature of our Web site is our first initiative in promoting exciting Web related projects as a new dimension of the so-called "art world".

In today's diverse and chaotic culture, having an accessible venue for exhibiting one's work is an often insuperable hurdle for many artists of real excellence. Las Vegas Art Museum hopes to help solve this problem by using the incomparable dissemination of the Internet.

The opportunity the Internet provides for spreading knowledge of new artists and art movements is unparalleled in previous art history. A historic moment is now upon us, when worldwide distribution of visual-art images has never been cheaper or more far-ranging.

The Internet also provides the ultimate democratic forum for the viewing, evaluating, and promoting of worthy art which, before today, may have faced a struggle of decades to reach the sympathetic admirers potentially awaiting any new art produced in our culture.

The Las Vegas Art Museum enthusiastically allies itself with this new technology, which will bring about changes in the world of art as profound as any since the Renaissance.

I personally invite you to browse and become acquainted with our museum, its exhibition schedule and other activities. Come and visit us next time you are in Las Vegas, we are 20 minutes traveling East from downtown.

Be sure not to miss our online feature, Truly Virtual Web Art Museum by Pygoya, our Artist-in-CyberResidence. Enter the imaginative mind of the artist and experience his simulated visit to a museum to discover real digital art. Not unlike a computer adventure game, successful sighting of the art in this intuitive virtual reality labyrinth is dependent on the visitor's navigational skills. Bookmark it from the start not just to find your way back but because nobody has ever seen it all!
