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.
