Are you on the Arts Map yet?
The Arts Map is a listing of artists and their contact information and the work they produce from across the globe. If you're travelling and want to check out some new artists or find a workshop, this may be the place to do it.
You can search the site by name, location and medium to find who is doing what and where. Google Maps pinpoints the address, making the artist easy to locate. For those uneasy about placing their exact location, you don't have to, but of course the location won't be accurate on the map, just the town that you choose.
There is no charge to sign up and place your dot on the map. I've created mine here and have the distinction - dubious or not - of being the most easterly in North America at the moment.
The Arts Map is about inclusion, not exclusion. Our goal is to provide a resource which will benefit the entire arts community.It is a beta release, meaning that the program is still undergoing some tweaks and upgrades.You can read the FAQs and learn more about the program and decide if you want to join in. The world of art is all about exposure and networking. I see the Arts Map as another tool that helps this process.
We hope you will create a marker and put yourself, your work, or your organization "on the map."
