Art House is the only digital art collection open to the public in the Southwest—and one of very few in the United States. Algorithmic, interactive, and virtual artworks from the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation are on view year-round, rotating seasonally. We are open during our gallery hours and by appointment. There is no admission fee, and school and group tours can be arranged in advance during both regular hours and by appointment.

Collecting Digital Art: Highlights + New Acquisitions
The Thoma Foundation features ongoing seasonal installations of contemporary artworks from the digital art collection and new acquisitions of historic importance. Our pioneering digital and electronic art collection spans the global history of computer art of the past fifty years, representing artistic innovations in custom-coded software, internet-connected and real-time animation, early computer drawing, interactive technology, video installation, electronic sculpture, and works utilizing LED and LCD displays.
EARTH ALGORITHMS: LANDSCAPES OF THE DIGITAL AGE
Opening August 23, 2019, 5-7pm
The natural resources of our global age range from bottlecaps to bamboo. Artworks by Syōryū Honda, Lee Nam Lee, and Elias Sime creatively harvest ripe technological materials to engage a landscape tradition of art. At root, the exhibit proposes a role for artistic intelligence to realize change in the world.
