Artists: Get Networked!
January 7, 2010
We interrupt our usual programming to give you a heads up on an exciting new networking tool: http://www.theartsmap.com
My friend, Jonathan Talbot, collage artist, has joined with a friend at MIT to create a map for artists, arts organizations and any art related entity.
The Arts Map website is for artists to post their info and get networked. There is a map that shows pins and when you click on a pin, a fly out gives you the associated artists info. This website has been live online for 3 days now and it’s now showing pins around the world for artists in other countries!
You can get yourself on the map and here’s how: There is a button upper right titled ‘get yourself on the map’, click that. Mark the appropriate boxes for your art, fill in the blanks, upload a picture of your work (or you!). It’s easy and quick.
Make yourself a password so you can edit your page as needed. Then click on ‘checkout’. The coupon code to put in is: FYFJAN This code makes it free for now. You have everything you need now so go get yourself on the map!
