(June 2010) The Arts Map is an international on-line resource to locate and identify artists and their studios, as well as galleries, art schools, museums, performing arts facilities, and related service organizations and businesses around the world, which are related to the arts. The resource is focused especially upon the great range of fine arts. Using specific names or more generalized selections made in an extensive check-box listing system and combined with the Google maps application and technology, The Arts Map may be used to search for what exists in a specific place, region, or country as well as to look up a subject by name or category. The reference tool was created by Robin Colodzin and Jonathan Talbot.

They realized that they weren't the only artists seeking connections, so they created The Arts Map." [1] The editor of the fine arts collage trade magazine, Cloth Paper Scissors,[6] led an article about the site with, "When you’re traveling and want to check out the local arts culture, it’s fairly easy to find museums and galleries. But artist studios? Not so much... [Robin Colodzin and Jonathan Talbot] have created an online guide to artists around the world...".[2] In another fine arts publication, Art Times, another editor advised her readers to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the resource by opening an account and trying it.[3] Use Through entries by the subjects,[4] The Arts Map site enables viewers to obtain detailed information about many types of fine artists and related institutions and businesses by their location as well as by name and type. Pins in a map displayed by a location search provide access to the subjects and moving one's cursor over the pins identifies each. The full listing for a subject opens with a mouse click. Listings may include images provided by the subject, a description of the subject, information on hours of operation, availability, or access. A map presented for each listing pinpoints its location within the community and may be expanded or contracted via a zoom device. Use of this site can enable travelers to identify and locate artists, museums, galleries, art schools and local teachers for classes, as well as finding individual art studios. Being useful to artists who are traveling also, they can find professional peers and supply businesses wherever they happen to be or plan to visit, by using any connection to the world wide web. Development history The The Arts Map site was created as a beta version late in 2009 that was launched on the Internet in mid-January of 2010 and, without promotion, by May 2010 had drawn four thousand listings with sixty-five countries represented in the listings. Listings are expected to rise gradually as knowledge of the site disseminates among artists, art patrons, curators, museums, schools, and supply businesses. [7] In September 2010 the developers announced that the listings had risen to six thousand listings representing eighty countries. The founders of the site, Robin Colodzin and Jonathan Talbot, assert that it is intended to be a resource which will benefit the entire arts community and that inclusion of all who wish to list is its goal, basic listings are free for artists, art museums, art schools, and art organizations.[5] A nominal fee has been established for many added benefits and for commercial users. There are special provisions for nonprofit organizations. Plans exist to enable the presentation of event schedules.[6] External links The Arts Map References ^ Dobush, Grace, "The Arts Map Plots Out the World of Art", The Artist's Magazine, May 2010, paper publication [1] and blog [2] ^ Prato, Cato Couloacos, "The Arts Map", Studios - Message Board: News Views and To Dos, Cloth Paper Scissors,[3] Summer 2010, page 8 ^ Seckel, Cornelia, “Culturally Speaking”, Art Times, Mar-Apr 2010, page 17 [4] ^ Illustrated Life, Jeanette Jobson ^ Colodzin, Robin and Talbot, Jonathan, The Arts Map ^ Seckel, Cornelia, “Culturally Speaking”, Art Times, Mar-Apr 2010, page 17 [5]
