The third annual Summer of Arts 2015 virtual arts event begins on September 25.

Metropolis Grid hosts this event to give cyber artists an opportunity to display their works to a wide audience. The art displayed ranges from audio-visual installations and theater projects to paintings and cyberart objects.

A special thanks should be given to Oddball Otoole for creating the 20’s themed scenarios for the two Summer of Arts regions.

After the opening on the 25th, the exhibition will host live performances from musicians and poetic readings in both English and German. Summer of Arts 2015 will run from September 25 until October 31, 2015.

“The Metaverse does not ask about borders, it is a place for everyone, with all our differences,” said FrancoGrid’s Praline Barjowski, in a statement. “This type of event is the best way to connect with each other. And cultural events are the best link we can share.”

    Great initiative, I love the way this kind of events help deliver the rightful image of virtual worlds potential, so newcomers stop calling them a game – Is for useful stuff like this Virtual Worlds are also great

  • This is one of the preeminent events in the free Hyperverse. Artists from throughout the Metaverse are involved.

    I think there is actually space for others until tomorrow. (ask in the above links for clarity).

  • Miney, we are sorry, but all rooms are taken at the exhibition. Also the extramural space is full of objects. In this case, we already had to send away some artists.

    Thanks to all this fantastic artists from so many grids and so many countries. Let’s the real world show, what it means: Hypergrid!
