Linden Lab has done something really good! They have set up a 9-sim region and dedicated it for the use of Second Life artists. According to the wiki, the sims are to be used in three ways: a general sandbox area, a "self-curating gallery area" for somewhat longer lasting displays by single artists, and a "building resources area" with freebies, classes and other goodies of use to artists working in this virtual environment. It has been open for less than two weeks, and only the sandbox area is active so far. But this is an exciting development for artists in SL.
