What's this then?
After a wildly successful campaign for Internet Week Europe, UK-based digital agency Saint is partnering with ArtWeLove, Deviant Art, The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and The NYC Department of Education to bring Can You Draw the Internet? to Internet Week NY.
What will certainly be one of NYC's largest participatory art initiatives of the year, CYDTI will tap into the creativity of students, creatives, and established artists. While the setting may differ, the brief is the same: Capture the spirit of the Internet's billions of pages in a single image.
Following Saint’s European blueprint, for Internet Week NY & Europe 2011 both festivals will launch physical gallery spaces in their respective Headquarters. From June 6-9 the Internet Week NY gallery space will include images from famed artists like Seth Indigo Carnes, Shelter Serra, Shaun Friesen, Douglass Rushkoff and Josh Harris as well as the best submissions in CYDTI. Pieces will be available for sale on ArtWeLove.com. All proceeds will be donated to support arts education in New York City public schools through The Fund for Public Schools.
Just by submitting, your work will be shown and promoted on www.canyoudrawtheinternet.com. A select group of student participants will also be asked to exhibit their work in the Internet Week NY HQ Gallery at Metropolitan Pavilion from June 6 to 9, 2011. Last year the HQ had more than 10,000 visitors and close to 20,000 are expected this year. The selected student artists will also win $100 gift certificates from storied NYC art supplier A.I. Friedman.
If asking you to draw the Internet on a single page wasn't reward enough :), a handful of creatives (18 and over) will be selected to have their work shown in the Internet Week gallery next to established artists like Seth Indigo Carnes, Shelter Serra and more whose art will be on sale for charity. All proceeds will be donated to support arts education in New York City public schools through The Fund for Public Schools.
