Museum of Computer Art (MOCA) Show This Friday

Dark Night of the Soul - Lynda Lehmann c 2008

The Museum of Computer Art is hosting a Reception and Awards Ceremony for their "Donnie 2009 Exhibit and Contest" at their Brooklyn gallery this Friday, February 27, from 4 to 7 p.m. Don Archer is Director and founder of MOCA, and the power behind the "Donnie" Exhibit.

The following information is excerpted from the Introduction page of the MOCA site:

MOCA: Museum of Computer Art is a nonprofit US educational corporation chartered by the NYS Department of Education. It is a member of the University of the State of New York and enjoys IRS 501 (c) (3) tax exempt status. It is first and foremost an online museum.

MOCA is host to hundreds of world-class digital artists and thousands of their images, all available for viewing here. It is one of the most heavily-trafficked, comprehensive, frequently-updated and respected computer art museums on the Web.


MOCA was established in 1993 by computer artists Don Archer and Bob Dodson to promote digital art in its various forms and manifestations, including 3-D rendered art, fractals, enhanced photography, animation, mixed media, computer-painted and -drawn art, etc.

In September 2008, MOCA established a brick-and-mortar physical gallery in Brooklyn NY showing advanced digital art in print or on screen.


Here is some information about this week's exhibit. If you're in the area, please visit the new brick and mortar MOCA, and support Don's vision for the art of the future.

WHEN: Friday, February 27, 2009, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Museum of Computer Art, 139 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215
Telephone: 718.788.1313

The Gallery at MOCA (http://moca.virtual.museum) is located at 139 Eleventh Street (between Second and Third Avenues), Brooklyn NY. Take the F train to 4th Avenue, or the M or R train to 9th Street.

  3. Love your work, Lynda. I'd be willing on a 99.9% chance that Brooklyn, NY is too far for a short drive from here :o).

    I'm really intrigued by computer art. I've been googling and finding different sites that share more of it. It's so crisp and clean, the colors are so vibrant.

  4. HEATHER - Yes, I think you're just a tad too far away to go to MOCA on Friday!

    Ooh, let me know what you come up with. I'm going to try doing more of the fractal-based art, as well as more digital paintings started in Painter and processed in Photoshop. (Have you tried Painter?)

    I hope you have fun with it, Heather, and find it less confusing than I do!

  5. Lynda I wish I could. I love digital art. I remember when I got my first copy of photoshop with my scanner in 1999, never stopped photoshopping since then. For about 3 years I did digital photo restoration of old photographs, but then being a perfectionist I think I almost injured my shoulder from excessive clicking, so I stopped and do it occasionally. However, it was fun....I love old photography. Lynda again, thanks for sharing. Anna :)

I try to respond to comments whenever I can. I ALWAYS appreciate your visits and friendship, and I will reciprocate with visits to your site. Thanks for sharing parts of your blogging journey with me. I value each and every one of you.

NOTE: Please, no more memes, schemes, or awards. They're fun and they may help us to know each other better, but I'd rather spend the time reading your posts and having you READ mine!

Happy blogging!
