JavaMuseum and its creator and director
Wilfried Agricola de Cologne would like to thank all artists and supporters
for helping to establish "netart" as an art genre of its own. Time will show,
whether 10 Years of JavaMuseum activities will have such a desired lasting effect.
On 1 January 2011, JavaMuseum became part of the new museum of networked art
"Le Musee -di-visioniste", a virtual museum with extensions in physical space
which is currently under construction - http://www.le-musee-divisioniste.org
In this way, JavaMuseum will remain completely available online
as an historical monument and document, including the option to
face also recent developments occasionally.
