Collection highlight: Artsy

by

“Art meets science.” That’s Logo_Fullthe mantra of the Art Genome Project — the power, brains, force behind   Artsy. ” Artsy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible  to anyone with an Internet connection.” With 50,000+ artworks by 11,000+ artists from leading collections (500+ galleries and 100+ museums) around the world, Artsy is one of the largest online collections of contemporary art. Artsy allows users to develop online collections, research artworks and artists, and even purchase works of art (some contemporary works are for sale but not all).

The Artsy engineers of the Art Genome Project rely on open-source to map the “genes,” or characteristics, of art historical movements, subjects, formal characteristics etc. connecting artists and their works. You can explore these links and other educational content on the Artsy Education page. You can get the Artsy app here.
