Walter Meyer

Santa Monica College
Professor
 

Walter Meyer received his Masters degree in art history from the
University of Southern California and is a professor at Santa Monica
College.  He serves on the board of the Craft and Folk Art Museum of Los
Angeles and is an independant art dealer and curator.  As an academic
and dealer, he seeks to push the boundaries of fine art by exploring
emerging media and in 2006 began exhibiting works by digital artists who
employ subject matter derived from games as well as the use of game
platforms for artistic ends.  "The interactive qualities and aesthetic
environments of 'games' and 'game worlds' make them incredibly rich for
content and form in the art world.  New media inevitably crosses into
fine art and we should facilitate that transition.  We are just
beginning to see the potential of this media and experience the fruits
that it will produce for both the art world and the wider cultural
experience."

Walter has worked at the Getty Center along with being an active fine art dealer and exhibition curator.  His specialties are American Art and contemporary Art.
