Web Call-Out: Artlog
As far as art sites go, nothing can top this virtual village which connects users through their love of art and design. Artlog has created a unique and accessible community in which discovery is unrestrained and super simplified. Silent statements from manipulated subway ads are too powerful to be limited just to the patrons of certain stations. Why should delightfully obscure galleries be limited to insiders and Billyburg locals?
Organized and clean, the site is decidedly simplistic, redirecting the attention to the content. Artlog displays event listings including “The Upcoming Picks” section and profiles current happenings with Map Guides that make exploring nearly idiot-proof. Powered by the community, there are no restrictions or costs to the art you can share.
You can nourish your social network by connecting to thousands of artists, insiders, and fellow enthusiasts. Use the site for your own selfish arty indulgences. But if you see something, say something! As Artlog proves, art was never meant to be exclusive.
