The University of California Institute for Research in the Arts supports embedded arts research through critical exchange


Deadline: 06/01/2012

Digital Arts: California invites digital artists and photographers worldwide to submit works for “Wide Open Digital,” a juried digital-arts exhibit that will celebrate every form of digital art, including digital painting/illustration, photo manipulation, 3D still digital art, light painting, fractals, vector art, HDR photography, 3D computer-generated imagery, digital college, “glitch” work, and generative art.

This exhibit will be held both online AND in a physical gallery in Los Angeles, San Diego, or another California art center. Works selected by our expert jurors as finalists will be showcased in solo, online galleries, each devoted to only one artist or photographer. These galleries will remain online for seven months. Top award-winners will also appear in a physical-gallery show. We seek to showcase talented digital artists from California to the world, and bring the world’s digital arts to California. Our last Exhibit, “True Colors”, showcased Gold Stellar Award (our top award) winner Michael Frank (Clovis, CA), along with twelve other outstanding California artists. In total, 74 artists from 23 countries were showcased, and the Exhibit was
viewed by visitors from over 1,200 cities worldwide.

As an example of our solo galleries, Michael Frank’s gallery can be viewed at:

We use a broad definition of “digital art”: any work whose creation or presentation involves a digital process that enhances the work.
