ArtAround is a budding social project to map and share art together.

This is where we blog about events, artists, and behind-the-scenes stuff.

ArtAround on PBS NEWSHOUR!

"The app, by its very nature, empowers people to explore their local surroundings." 

Read Marc Sollinger’s piece about how the ArtAround app is promoting the discovery of public art in Washington, D.C. (and around the country).
