ABOUT PIXEL POPS!: PixelPops!, now in its 3rd year, is an ongoing, traveling series of annual digital art exhibits, each with its own theme and each curated in a new location by a new individual. The series is wildly organic in the sense that it changes with each year’s new locale and the creativity that each new curator brings to it. Year after year the online catalogue continues to grow and provide new resonances and global connections in artistic interpretation. PixelPops was founded by and is set in motion each year (from afar) by Colleen Tully (http://www.colleentully.com). Previous guest curators have been Cynthia Beth Rubin (New Haven, 2005), Natalia Vasquez, Joan Sanchez, Michal Blazek (Prague, 2006)
