LFG 4 WoW Art Pst

Alright, I must admit, I am a fan of this game. World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massive multiplayer online role-player game (MMORPG) that has taken this world by storm with over 11.5 million monthly subscribers which makes this game the most popular MMORPG. Blizzard Entertainment is the video game developer and publisher which started a virtual community where fans would create artwork related to the game and share their expression of passion.

Blizzard Entertainment, Tierzero and the Samia Family is responsible for presenting the exhibition "WoW: Emergent Media Phenomenon" at the Laguna Art Museum located in the beautiful city of Laguna Beach, California. Once I heard about this event, I had to visit the exhibition to view the art in person. I was amazed by the numerous participating artists from around the globe. The exhibition consist of graphics and packaging artwork from Blizzard, the exploration of in-game design and development, fan art, and a silent auction. The exhibition is great for all ages. Afterwards, take a walk down to the beach and enjoy the beautiful weather, good food and shopping.

The exhibition continues until October 4.
I'd like to thank Marni Brewster, Communications Manager for Laguna Art Museum in granting Monzuki full access and information for the coverage of the exhibition.
