Art.sy started off as an invite only service while they developed their software and site. A year or two ago I joined their beta program, and I’ve liked looking through their libraries. Today I got an email announcing that it is finally ready for public launch. Here is a little more information:
Art.sy started four years ago in a college dorm room with the simple idea that all the world’s art should be freely accessible. Today’s launch marks our first step toward making that idea a reality. You can read more about our story in The New York Times.
We’re also honored to launch in partnership with over 50 outstanding art institutions—including SFMOMA, Fondation Beyeler, Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Museum, and The British Museum—and more than 275 leading galleries.
