The New York Underground Museum is a permeable internet membrane of ideas, energies, and sensitivities. NYUM is a new model for Museums - a museum surrounded by air and light, open 24 hours a day where interactivity and collective viewer feedback are integrated into the perceptual process. NYUM curates, presents and preserves works that are not held by major institutions
We celebrate experimental artists working outside the Art
Establishment, such as female artists, anti social artists,
artists with emotional and physical disabilities, and artists of
New York City is more than a city. It is an idea. Through NYUM, the NY Experimental Art Community extends it's bright tentacles beyond its geographical and chronological location to encompass a metaphysicality of art lovers and connoisseurs. NYUM is a harbinger of a new era of cultural inclusiveness.
The New York Underground Museum is designed specifically for the worldwide web, and the artworks presented are ideally suited for Internet delivery: Digital Art, Video, Performance Art, Animation, Interactive Art, Visual Music. Our museum is open to the global public, 24/7.
As money for the arts diminishes, there is a need for new
strategies in arts presentation. We will present work by
internationally recognized art stars as well as recent art by
underground, visionary and emerging artists rarely seen outside of
New York City. We have access to this content because of our
decades of work and long standing connections with curators,
scholars and artists in the New York art world.

From 2006 - 2012 our MYSPACE.COM/nyundergroundmuseum page was viewed by 5 million people and featured the work of 70,000 artists. Our MySPACE NY Interact Global Chat program facilitated dialogue between international artists. It was ALIVE with art spirits debating and declaiming about contemporary artistic practice. We mourn (without real grief) the demise of MYSPACE. The Late Myspace.com was an early adopter of interactive global transmedia...some of our videos still hover there, disembodied, in the digital limbo of heritage technology...
