10 Eastern @ Motor City
Speaking of what the internet can do for artists and the contemporary art community...here is another example:
"10Eastern was founded in 2003 by Rich Vogel to showcase the works of a tightly knit scene of Grand Rapids Michigan based musicians. 10 Eastern is also a place, the house where the site started.
In 2004 the Drawrings Boards were started, with the introduction of a java based applet that allows you to draw using your mouse and save the results to a gallery. A number of people who stumbled upon the site started drawing and interacting and grew quickly, with over 1000 drawn in a few months time, and more than 20,000 drawn to date by people from many different countries."
