ArtPrize 2014: Share Your Favorite Entries With ArtPrize’s New Listing Feature
With 1,536 artist entries, seeing everything at ArtPrize is next to impossible.
Narrowing down what to see is a difficult process, but there is help coming this year.
ArtPrize's new listing feature will make it easy to give and get suggestions on where to go and what to see at ArtPrize.
ArtPrize has always embraced technology through their app and website.
ArtPrize founder Rick DeVos has said, “At ArtPrize, technology is a catalyst for the physical experience.”
A major technological advancement for improving the experience this year is the "listing feature".
A simple idea, but one that will make it easier to find and share good art.
Anyone with an ArtPrize account may make an unlimited number of lists either on the website or with the app.
Lists can be named, given descriptions, and made public or private. Lists can also be shared via social media, text message, and email.
Jonathan Hunsberger, ArtPrize director of technology explains lists:
Our goal was to enable our users to organize and share information with each other quickly and easily, ultimately answering the questions ‘What should I go see?’ and ‘How do I get there?’ Perhaps one of the best developments in lists this year was the ability to generate walking directions from any list you want.”
Lists are currently available at ArtPrize.org and will be available on the app when it is released on September 22.
The ability to make and share lists, then have a map give you walking directions to the next venue, will help to make it easier and faster to enjoy art at ArtPrize.
It's also easy to see how the listing feature could help bring more attention and votes to entries that may otherwise have gone unnoticed.
Going to ArtPrize but don't know where to begin? Why not follow the list of a friend or family member? Jurors and others will have public lists available too.
The listing feature will bring more exposure to more artists making it another step forward for ArtPrize.
