Our panel of illustrious judges [ Jimmy Breslin, Karen Helmerson, Roger Anderson, Nina Felshin and Bob Holman] worked hard to select 10 finalists among the 70 drawings produced during the drawing contest. They pondered, discussed and voted.

... and the winners were:
Rowan Boehning 1st Prize 3 acres of land on the moon
Virginia Buchan 2nd Prize 2 acres of land on the moon
Jeffrey Lispsky 3rd Prize 1 acre of land on the moon

Other finalists were: Suzanne Boehning, Adam Colman, Bella Danieli, Roberto Guerra, Kaela Noel, The Thomson Family, Sander Veenhof. All entries can be viewed on our website.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Judges, to Maggi Peyton, to Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese who conceived the project, to the artists who participated in colonizing the moon, to all the contestants, to Richard Minsky and his crew on SLART/Second Life, and to Tekserve, Material for the Arts and the NY State Council on the Arts for their generous contributions.

LOCATION ONE is a not-for-profit organization devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology. We invite artists from different disciplines and from different countries to work in our studios. We ask them to experiment with the new technologies of artistic creation, interaction and delivery. We urge them to collaborate in creating new works and give them virtual Internet spaces and physical gallery space to exhibit the results. Our goals are to foster the creation of new work, new forms of expression, and new capabilities in artists, and to advance new awareness in all those we reach.
