Can virtual art stimulate real-world political action?  Find out on  
Friday, October 24, as digital media artists Peggy Weil (Ping Rau in  
SL) and Nonny de la Peña (Nonny Writer) discuss how they are using 3D  
artwork as a form of political expression and civic engagement.  At  
the Global Kids' Justice Center (click here to teleport ) from 10-11am  
PST on October 24.

Peggy and Nonny have been involved in a number of ground-breaking  
digital media projects that explore the intersections of art and  
politics, from "The Redistricting Game" that Peggy designed to  
"Unconstitutional" a documentary of civil liberties in America post  
9/11 produced by Nonny.  They will talk about their latest  
explorations of political artwork in SL, from the "Gone Gitmo" project  
to the "Mauerkrankheit/Wallsickness" installation that was an  
Annenberg Public Good Merit Award winner.  Then we will teleport over  
to their exhibits to get a guided tour from them!
