More than 6,500 deviantART members have contributed to the One Million Masterpiece charity project in the last three months 65% of the entire picture so far.
Five international charities have come together to produce a record breaking piece of global art that will represent all people from around the world. To kick things off they have created a global alliance of the largest online arts communities who are supporting the project, however deviantART have shown their dominance by driving ten times more members to the website that anyone else.
The first goal of The One Million Masterpiece project is to smash the current world record of 25,297 contributors to a single artwork. We think that with the help of the deviantART community we can hit that target by the end of the year so if you havent already done so please get on over there and make your mark!

The One Million Masterpiece aims to create a unique snapshot of our global society, and to sum up its diversity in one single picture It will be the worlds largest ever artistic collaboration, with the final picture being unveiled and exhibited on World Population Day 2007 as a symbol of global unity.
