Cyberangel Artworks in Museum Collections in States with Places Called JerUSAlem

Alexenberg's cyberangel artworks are in the collections of art museums in seven of the twelve states where there are places called JerUSAlem.  They were acquired for the collections of the museums below when he made them (1986-87) at Pratt Institute in New York when he was head of the art department.  His cyberangel artwork is also represented in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History as a pioneering exemplar of computer-generated fine art printmaking.

Angels Ascending from the Land of Israel
 This serigraph in the collection of the Israel Museum was created by Mel Alexenberg at the museum affiliated Burston Graphics Center in Jerusalem, Israel.  It inspired the cover of the artist's newest book Through a Bible Lens: Biblical Insights for Smartphone Photography and Social Media.  The book provides the conceptual background for his cyberangel artworks: fine art prints, paintings, global telecommunications events, and the digital flight of cyberangels from Jerusalem in Israel to JerUSAlems in USA.
