On LEA2: The Path, curated by Bryn Oh
Opening October 14
Based off the Surrealists exquisite corpse concept, each artist was randomly given a scene to compose. A narrative is begun by artist one who then passes it on to artist number two. Artist two adds to the story and passes it on to three and so on until the narrative reaches its conclusion at artist number eight.
Artists in order by scene

On LEA3: FAST ART: Competitive Build Improvisation In The Virtual World, hosted by Solo Mornington
A series of speed build competitions, until the sim is full.
Twice-weekly events, with a number of options for artists in all time zones.
On LEA4: Interact!, curated by L1Aura Loire/Lori Landay
Opening October 15
Virtual art can invite, or even insist, that you interact with it. The artists in this exhibition cleverly and creatively make art out of interactions between data, objects, actions, and people within and beyond the virtual world in a stunning array of installations and experiences that stretch the possibilities of virtual art. Expect the unexpected, and click whenever you can.

Hmmm what else... each Monday at 4pm SLT is the Avatar Games run by myself Galea Yates, Sasun Steinbeck, Taralyn Gravois with voice commentary from Crap Mariner and Honour McMillan. Crap may be actually running the course this upcoming week so feel free to come shoot him good. I know Honour will be in the front row with her gun sights set firmly on his arse.

LEA Art Sandbox Building Areas
The LEA Art Sandbox is located on the LEA5 region, which is split into the following parcels:
- General Sandbox Area: This is what people think of when they think of a sandbox. A big area of virtual land with a relatively long autoreturn time.
- Self-Curating Gallery Area: The purpose of this area is to provide Second Life artists a two-week place to rez their work, and to provide other Residents a place to browse the works of Second Life artists.
- Building Resource Area: This area contains freebie build tools, LDPW and Torley texture collections, and so forth. It is the landing point, and visitors can get the sandbox rules and policies from the kiosk at the landing point location.
In all areas, scripting will be turned off for non-group Residents. Residents who join the land group can run scripts. The group is open to the public, so anyone can join. Just search on “LEA Art Sandbox” to find the group.
Or ask for help from the wonderful PatriciaAnne Daviau queen of the Sandbox.
And finally in the upcoming week we will be making a huge announcement. The LEA is made up of some very careful ultra conservatists mingled with some rational minds and then one raving lunatic which sadly is me. Once we can agree on a formal announcement then I will post it here, but it is great news!
