Do you love art? Do you think people sharing and commenting on the photographs of great artworks are kind of stupid? You are at the right place, friend. There’s an app called ArtSpotter, and it’s revamped now, with a bunch of new features and a well thought out purpose.
“This is our first proper app”, said ArtSpotter founder Raphaëlle Heaf. The earlier version of the app was really an aggregator for event listings that anyone could add to, but the new one is more about activity. It’s not only about discovering what is around you, but making it more social.
The new ArtSpotter is really trying to help people engage with art by helping people recommend, document and comment on the exhibitions, venues and street work they find. And it is not about sharing pictures, it’s about experiencing the art in a gallery, museum, or on a wall. It’s about making people see art in real life, pushing aside the digital trend.
What makes ArtSpotter stand out is its purpose of getting data about what people like and want with art, what they are doing right now and then sell that data to art venues and art sellers.
ArtSpotter could easily be the Path for art lovers..
