Jennifer Steinkamp works on a wobbly table in a small garage-turned-studio in Mar Vista. She works for hours at multiple computers and monitors, coaxing ravishing imagery out of the software: Maya, Director, After Effects, Photoshop. No music to liven the time, just the hum of the CPU and her old, arthritic dog, Cariesta, snoring on the floor beside her.

The Santa Monica Museum of Art has received a $121,500 grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts for an upcoming exhibit exploring art and legislation. "Citizen Culture: Artists and Architects Shape Policy" will go on display in fall 2014 and will examine how public art throughout the Americas can act as an agent for social change. Curated by Lucía Sanromán, the show will feature works by Laurie Jo Reynolds, who led Tamms Year Ten, a grassroots campaign to close the supermax prison in Illinois.

Those of us who are computer artists are pleased that Jennifer Steinkamp has met with some degree of success with her art ("Awash in a Dance of Colors," by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, Nov. 19), but I am dismayed at her elitist, negative attitude toward other computer artists: "Most computer art is terrible." Like a growing number of artists, she has opted to use computer technology to express herself. Like many of us, she has discovered that the computer allows artists to expand their vision and imagination in limitless and inspiring new ways.

Jennifer Steinkamp makes virtual art. However, her installations of abstract colored light take place in the mundane realm of unvirtual reality, which, in this case, is the ACME Gallery in Santa Monica (through Dec. 10). "SWELL," as her piece is titled, consists of a long horizontal wall awash in dancing particles of light floating in a sea of deep blue.

Bob Sipchen, editor of Sierra magazine, will moderate. Getty Center, 1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles. 7 p.m. Thu. Free, reservations recommended.

I was really looking forward to the article on Jennifer Steinkamp ("The Garden in Her Machine," by Gendy Alimurung, The Art Issue, Jan. 28). Sadly, both the subject and the writing fell far short of my expectations. It seems as if Steinkamp's art is neither a bold, new visual direction nor an emotional insight of any consequence. It is almost a late-20th century piece of "folk art" that is easily overpowered by even the lowliest screen saver. As far as the writing is concerned, I take great offense as an Art Center alumnus to being cataloged as an "eye-candy-obsessed workaholic."
