This list was created on 5/1/2006 by Sasun Steinbeck and has been maintained since
then for the benefit of the wonderful galleries, artists and art lovers in Second
Life. Spend some time visiting the galleries and museums by clicking below to visit,
spend generously to support the many excellent artists making Second Life such a
beautiful and creative place, and send the gallery owners a word of thanks if you
enjoyed their gallery!
When in world, be sure to click one of the gallery kiosks found at any of the locations
below to get your gallery tour HUDs that make it easy and fun to visit more art
galleries in Second Life. Enjoy!
If you are a gallery owner and would like to join the list, please go get a kiosk
in-world or at the
SL Marketplace and rez it at your gallery. The kiosk will give you detailed
instructions on how to be automatically added to the list.
There are quite a few benefits to joining this list, first and foremost being visibility!
This will get your name in front of a lot of people that use this list to find interesting
places to visit via the SLURLs on the web page or the tour HUD. In October 2009,
there were 2869 clicks or HUD map popups of specific galleries, the vast majority
of which resulted in a visit, so this list is definitely being used!
The kiosk also comes with a free visitor counter that can distribute gifts as well
as greetings, and provides your own personal visitor chart online! The counter can
be configured to an optimal range or turned off if you already have a visitor counter
On occasion I will plot the number of galleries on the list to give us a good historical
record of art gallery growth in SL:
The kiosk system used for the gallery list is
an advanced version of the KioskNet system sold
by me commercially. The kiosks are configured via a web-based form and all kiosk
data is stored in both a SQL and mySQL database that you can view live here on
this website at any time.
