With more than 20 years of history at the forefront of digital art, the New York Digital Salon, founded in 1993 to provide an annual venue for this art form in New York City, has grown and expanded. We now host international exhibitions, public lectures, educational and public programs, and a website, which serves as an archive and a resource for those interested in the creative aspects of digital culture. In the fall of 2003, the New York Digital Salon marked its 10th anniversary with the exhibition Vectors: Digital Art of Our Time and related scholarly and public programs to showcase the work of international artists selected by leading curators from around the world. It was supported by grants from the NEA, the Rockefeller Foundation, NYSCA and others. The NEA grant was used to support the exhibition held at the World Financial Center, along with public programs throughout New York City.

We now see a new generation of artists who are growing up digitally literate. Their creative work will help define the future of contemporary art.
