One year ago the digitalartmuseum.com first "opened" its internet doors, presenting its maiden exhibition of digital artists from around the world. Truly a labor of love by its creators--DigitalArtMuseum.com has in the ensuing year given ninety-four digital artists a monthly forum to present their works to the world. Thus, the museum has presented over fourteen hundred works of digital art in its first year of existence! And DigitalArtMuseum.com is truly an international undertaking, featuring artists not only from the United States, but from nations including Canada, Mexico, Spain, Australia, India, France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Russia, Korea, Turkey, Ireland, Sweden, Ecuador, Argentina, United States, Holland, the Netherlands, Japan, Yugoslavia, New Zealand, and Portugal. There are no restrictions, qualifications, resumes, censorship, fees, or limitations imposed on the artists--only the requirement that the submitted works come straight from the artist's creative heart and soul. On display is that pure artistic expression in digital form, as enhanced by the words of the artists themselves. Hence, it is hardly surprising that numerous talented digital artists have patiently waited (or are patiently waiting) for their opportunity to be exhibited in DigitalArtMuseum.com. During that first year, the look of the museum has evolved through the continuing efforts of the designers-curators to improve both the ease of its use and the aesthetics of its design. The lobby of the museum has evolved into a unique collaborative work of digital art in which the creators fuse the museum's design with a work of one of the featured artists for the month, in conjunction with a written expression of some aspect of the artistic perspective of the digital artist.

During its first year, the museum could not help but attract the attention of the press--as a featured site in the May/June 2000 of MacToday; Apple iReview.com and as the subject of a detailed article in the Dallas Morning News on May 11, 2000.

With so many fine artists and works on display, it is difficult to focus the spotlight on particular artists. A survey of the Past Exhibitions can only reveal the great diversity of the field of digital art. From the fantasticly vivid abstractions of Mickey Shine, intended to depict visually the "sound" of his music, to the alien skies of David Palermo; from the lovely scanned watercolor landscapes of Roger Cummiskey, to the enigmatic and solitary cityscapes from another dimension of Kolya Tatic; from the dreamlike digital photographs of Ireland of John Michael Riley, to the fantastic figures of Gabriele Brugnaro, digitalartmuseum.com has begun its mission of documenting the evolution of this new extension of the artistic domain.

We want to thank you to all the artists for being part of this digital project.
