Sasun's Best Galleries of SL updated

From time to time I'm asked what my favorite art gallery is. Of course I could never narrow it down to just one, but out of the 600+ galleries just on this list, just a handful have made it on to my personal list of favorites, and I'd like to share it with you. This is entirely personal and subjective. I tend to recommend bigger galleries with a lot of diversity, high quality, and prefer 3D scripted art experiences. If you know of a gallery that you believe should be on this best of the best list, please comment! And now the list, in no particular order:

Artropolis - Filthy Fluno
Crescent Moon Museum - Tayzia Abattoir
Museum of Hyperformalism - Dancoyote Antonelli
The Grand Gallery - Tommy Parrott
SL Art Community Center - Mar Dwi
Studio 33 - Monroe Snook
Arthole - Nebulosus Severine and Arahan Claveau

Press Release: SL Art Gallery Growth



Art Is Alive and Well in the World of Second Life - Over 600 Art Galleries Confirmed As Growth Continues

On Feb 16th, the Galleries of Second Life list published by Sasun Steinbeck broke the 600 mark with 455 general galleries, 101 photography galleries, and 46 erotic galleries cataloged on her well-known list. Contrary to fears of a mass migration of creativity out of Second Life, this demonstrates that art is continuing on a steady growth curve for the benefit and enrichment of all the citizens of Second Life.

"I've been maintaining this list since may 2006, and I'm extremely happy and proud to see us reach this amazing level of growth in the art world of Second Life," said Sasun Steinbeck. "This is truly a milestone event."

Sasun Steinbeck uses a sophisticated scripted network of kiosks throughout Second Life that she designed and implemented to automate the collection of current data on all of the art galleries in Second Life, enabling weekly updates to be published via notecard and a gallery tour HUD distributed by the kiosks as well as her blog. This is her 96th edition of the list.

The current edition of the Galleries of Second Life list can be found at http://sl-artgalleries.blogspot.com.
