The One Million Masterpiece has officially taken the world record for the most artists creating a single artwork, meaning that it has officially become the world's largest artistic collaboration.
The previous record was set in Brenham, Texas, where 25,297 people contributed to a painting titled A Little Dab of Texas. While the previous record was set over 3 years and 7 months, the One Million Masterpiece members have achieved the record in just 11 months.
The 25,298th member to join the project was Geraldine Tough from Crayford in London. Geraldine heard about the project from a friend and unknowingly pushed the number of participants over the previous record when registering.
Her contribution embodies the project's core aim of create a work of art that encompasses all abilities, ages and cultures. On hearing the news she was quick to point out that "I am no artist, but thought even I could do something here". She was right.
The One Million Masterpiece is a democratic artwork with no single person having more control than any other. Each member has today become an official world record breaker. Well done everybody!

Great news. This is such an achievement and I will not be modest in telling everyone that I am now an official record breaker :D - And this press release is getting put up on all of the memo boards I can find.
