I am the president of BighouseArt.com, a nonprofit organization that promotes artwork created by prison inmates. I wanted to thank you for mentioning our organization in the Oct. 15 website article "Where to Buy Prison Art in the U.S. and Abroad" by Judith Fein [latimes.com /prisontravel].

"But in that neighborhood, houses that were half the size were way more expensive."

This art gallery cost about a billion dollars less to build than the new Getty. But for all of the Getty's sleek modernism, Jon Peterson's site for viewing art is even more cutting-edge. And to visit Peterson's gallery, there's no need to battle crowds, book reservations or board a tram. All one needs to view the work at this virtual gallery is a computer and a modem. "Every artist should have a chance to show their work," says Peterson, an abstract painter and creator of http://www.w3art.com.
