Cetus Gallery District for sale

From Jonah Zenovka, part of the Cetus leadership group:


March 23, 2009

Dear Valued Cetus Gallery District Community Members,

As many of you know, construction of Cetus began in 2006. Since then, the district has played an important role in the cultural life of the Second Life grid. Although I have been off-world and away from Second Life for some time now, Cetus has continued on, thanks to a dedicated team of residents.  However, given that my real life priorities have altered my SL ones so substantially in recent months, with an increased project load and new publishers occupying my schedule, I have decided either to: 1) identify a buyer for the sim, or 2) cease operations effective April 30, 2009. 

If you or someone you know may be interested in continuing the legacy of Cetus Gallery District, please contact me. Otherwise, please drop by the sim before the closing date for a final visit. Residents may collect rezzed objects prior to the 4/30/09, or those objects simply can be returned by me to your inventory after that date.

Thank you for being part of the wonderful experiment and historical moment – the world’s first online simulated urban arts district. While Cetus may not continue in operation should no one opt to take it over, our network of friends and business relationships – and fond memories – can endure well beyond Cetus.


Best Always,

Xander Ruttan

Founder, Cetus


Here’s hoping for the best for one of SL’s consistently fine arts venues…
