ArtSpotter is an Interactive Art Map founded in April 2011.
For the user, ArtSpotter is like foursquare meets Timeout. It allows anyone to discover what‘s going on in the art world near them, anywhere in the world, as well as engage back and share their experience by adding comments, new art venues and telling their friends what they are seeing and how they found it.
It opens up art to a new audience and allows galleries to be able to access a new wealth of metrics about each of their events through the application (who visited, when they visited, what they said, where they shared the info, etc). Think of it like Google Analytics but for a venue.
The beta app went live on iPhone in December and Android in January, and closed a seed round shortly after that.
#newartspotter went live August 2012 and has already received over 5000 downloads.
