The Work of Rebecca Hargrave Malamud / 1987 - 2013
Rebecca Hargrave Malamud is a visual artist, information designer and media activist who has been working in and around print and online technologies for nearly 25 years and weaving the web since there was one. She got her start with online bulletin board systems and community information services in the years before the web reached the masses, and learned the value of collaboration to advance good ideas early in her career. Her designs have helped many notable open source initiatives and social causes gain the recognition they deserve.
Rebecca's creative work has received accolades from The Webby Awards, NewMedia Invision Awards, Art Directors Club of New York, Communication Arts, HOW Magazine, SXSW Multimedia, and the Global Information Infrastructure Awards. The mentoring program she founded, the Rural Design Collective, was recognized at Libre Graphics 2010, an annual international conference that celebrates open source creativity.
Her gallery hosts an annual "happening" each fall - an international celebration of art and creativity featuring artists from all over the globe who embrace some aspect of the Internet in their art. The current series is "Art in The Information Age." The third exhibit in the series is scheduled for Fall 2011.
