    1st MUGA show: “Touch Me – While I Hold My Breath” by Gwynie Beaumont 

    The Medici University Gallery of Art is pleased to announce its first exhibition at the Art Farm (LEA28).

    “Touch Me – While I Hold My Breath” by Gwynie Beaumont, an installation of sculpture on the MUGA grounds and a retrospective of her photography in the gallery.

    Opening show 1 PM SLT, August 15, 2015.
    The show will run through August 22.

    Due to real life, I won’t be able to attend, but the artist will be available to answer questions. I hope you all can attend.

    The sculptures are really fun.

    For the next show, I’d like to get everyone at the sim to contribute to an installation in the gallery. Make it a collaborative effort, the kind Edie envisioned. 😀

      Gwynie’s been working really hard setting up and things are looking great. Please attend & make sure to touch the sculptures. 🙂

      Congratulations Myra! Congratulations Gwynie!

      So exciting!!

    A graduation gift for everyone 


    Hi, everyone.

    Emma Maybe made a graduation gift for everyone. I sent it out to the group in-world. If you missed it, just im me and I’ll give you a copy.

    Everyone who had a studio at MU and many who didn’t, contributed to the success and wonder that was Medici University. In that spirit, this is a graduation gift for you all.

    It’s an awesome gift, Emma’s awesome for making it, and you’re all awesome for taking part in MU.

    Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for everything.

    Generatives, glitch, and gifs MUGA opening 

    The Generatives, glitch, and gifs opening was held on Friday, June 5th. It was a nice event and there was a good turnout. The artists talked about their work and it was an opportunity for others on the campus and off to meet them.

    Thank you everyone who helped with this event, loaned their work to the aspiring gallery, and attended this event. A special thanks to the artists – Pearl Grey, FeelsEmpty, Elle Thorkveld, and Michael Green – and to Oona for building the gallery.

    The show will run through June 15. Please stop by if you haven’t had a chance to see the show. After that, I’ll try to do one last show, probably machinima.

    Here are some pics from the event:

      Great article Myra 🙂 The show was a great success I think. I’ll be sad when June ends, I love MUGA a lot.

    • Elle 16:04 on 10/06/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Great write up & love the pics, Myra. It was a fun opening, thanks to my fellow artists and all who attended for making it that way! And thank you to Myra for curating & facilitating this exhibit and to Oona for all her gallery building. Excellent work.

      I recall participating on one of Feels Empty’s Step Art creations. Fun! Great exhibit.

    • Myra 06:37 on 11/06/2015 Permalink | Reply

      thanks so much, everyone. It’s official, now. I want your movies. We’ll figure out how to upload and host them.

      Great work Myra – congratulations on a strong gallery show. And congrats to all participants! Making MU vibrant…

    The MU Gallery of Art is open and we want to show your art!

    We’ve opened an art gallery on the ground floor of the new dance club. Please send me a work of your art – your writing, your photos, your towers, your devilish good looks. Anything. I’ll find a way of exhibiting it.

    Curator, The MU Gallery of Art

      Hi Myra. I’m a 9 1/2 year old SLer, a rl and sl photographer. In 2008 I did an exhibit called Moon over Caledon and would like to exhibit the two pieces from that exhibit. One is called Men’s Discussion Group and the other is called Women Being Women. I’d love to show them in your gallery. Thanks so much for all your work!

    • Myra 09:57 on 11/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

      HI, Poppy. Sure, contact me in-world. MU students have priority, but I should have room. And I think we have a spare studio spot if you want to join MU. : )

      Thank you for your interest.

    • Oona 03:57 on 14/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

      So excited for this opportunity to showcase the amazing art that MU Students are creating. Stop by often, as Myra changes out art, and donate often, I’m talking to every one of you and your amazing art, photography, mixed media, sculpture talent.

    Intro 2 Haptics & The Hapkit 

    I’ve decided to give the Introduction to Haptics course from Allison Okamura (Instructor) & Melisa Orta (Teaching Assistant) at Stanford / Stanford Open EdX a try. A core element of this self-paced MOOC is assembling Stanford’s low-cost “Hapkit.” It’s a 1-degree of freedom controller / force-feedback device.

    Let’s Play!

    Anybody in a Virtual World want to join in? It’d be cool to have 2 of us (or 3 or a bunch) make these and integrate them into in-world experience in some way. Perhaps actually using in-world data pipelines, or using a parallel connection that’s not in-world but can live-sync to avatar activities. I have no idea how to do any of this or what the possibilities or limitations might be, but it sure seems like a fun thing to poke around with.

    Hey y’all. Great password you gave me Vanessa 😀 Penny asked me to pass along that she had a blast at DragonCon VR and the circulation is slowly returning to her arms ^^
