Winners Announcement MBK ArtContest CloseToNature

Next Sunday, the 27th of November 2011, at 1pm SLT the secret will be disclosed: six of 18 artists got enough points in the public and jury voting of the MBK art contest CloseToNature to become part of the artwalk along the river in the small Bavarian themed city of the Meisterbastler main sim. Nevertheless all the other art sculptures were admired by the visitors too and got a lot of votes. The final voting result can be seen in the BookCorner Meisterbastler South. The winners announcement party will take place closed to the Italian Restaurant Il Cipresso and DJ Zewe will spin some hot tunes after announcing the winners and transferring the prize money of 3000, 2000, 1000, 600, 300 and 150 to the artists. Miriam Evanier, chief of the local press, called Kurier, will hold a short speech concerning the 4th anniversary of the magazine. Asmita Duranjaya, the curator of the contest and the presentation, will congratulate the artists. Everybody interested in art is welcome to join the party:

VIP - VirtualInstrumentPlayers

Four avis, Miriam Evanier, reinhold Apfelbaum, Asmita Duranjaya and Yira Rossini have founded the performance group "Virtual Instrument Players" = VIP. They have prepared a private music stream for the guests playing Southamerican flute-music and use selfmade and bought musical instruments and animations. Because of the technical impossibility to synchronize both completely in SL they ask the listeners to tolerate some asynchronicity. Yira Rossini reads poems of LatinAmerican poets. The performance is at the same time the opening for the JungleGallery with Asmita Duranjaya's exhibition SIGNUM showing (new) virtually processed RL stamp-pictures and jewel-sets with inka-motifs. After the "official" performance part a LatinSalsa-party will start. So feel cordially invited on 13th of November at 2pm SLT on Asmita's Island on the Edge:
Important notice: All the donations during the event will go to the Afghanistan Museum in Second Life and the organisation RAWA, that cares for the education of Afghan women.
