NY MAP

Hosted by Rhizome 2009-2013, this map identifies organizations, networks, and related links throughout NYS and beyond, that offer a variety of media arts services and information. Coming soon, in 2014, Wave Farm will manage a significant overhaul of The NYS Media Arts Map. A vital connecting point for cultural organizations and the general public interested in electronic art, media, and film statewide, the new Map will dynamically profile organizations and their public programs. Online discussion and networking opportunities will facilitate communication and collaboration, while virtual tours will provide the general public with new information and access.

To ensure your organization will be included in the new Map, please contact:
