Adobe launches Adobe Museum of Digital Media

Adobe Systems has announced the official opening of the Adobe Museum of Digital Media (AMDM). A one-of-a-kind online museum, AMDM is an interactive venue to present and preserve groundbreaking digital media works, inspire creative ideas and experimentation, and provide a forum for expert commentary on how digital media influences culture and society. It is located at

As social and cultural discourse moves increasingly to the Internet, artists, designers and other cultural producers are turning to digital media to explore and express their ideas. Founded in this spirit, the AMDM will feature programmes and works in fields as diverse as visual art, film, performance, design, architecture and social media, and will engage a wide range of curators and cultural luminaries to develop content and programmes. It will reflect the mission of traditional museums in upholding the highest standards in creative processes and curatorial practices. Yet, it will present these in a digital venue leveraging the interactivity, lack of physical boundaries and 24/7 availability of the online world.

"Adobe works with a wide range of creative professionals every day. We see extraordinary digital projects that take advantage of current technology and point to where creative minds will take digital media in the future," said Ann Lewnes, Senior Vice- President of Global Marketing, Adobe. "The museum was inspired by them and is a tribute to their talent and innovation. We believe digital media plays an important role in shaping our society as well as our creative culture and should be celebrated in a space where the medium is literally the message."
