With art and culture sites being a dime a dozen these days, it’s hard to figure out which ones are actually worth your valuable time. In fact, if you love keeping up-to-date on new and exciting museum exhibits or just the latest pop culture news, it now makes more sense to find sites that can aggregate this information for you, ones that curate their content so well that you only need to follow their site (or a few more). Today, we’ve chosen six sites that do just that. Not only do they showcase rising creative talent, they’ll also keep you on top of the latest art and culture news.
1. Art Daily
Called “The First Art Newspaper on the Net,” Art Daily is a great resource to find the latest news on what’s going on in the art world. Founded by Ignacio Villarreal in 1996, this website will tell you about the newest exhibitions at museums all around the world. Can’t make it? Its Best Photos of the Day section will quickly and visually show you what’s happening. They’ll even tell you which particular fine art pieces are being sold at record breaking prices or which art installations are really worth the visit.
Tip: Art lovers, search through Art Daily’s deep archive to find over 50,000 articles on current and past exhibitions. This site also has a list of artists, museums and photographers you can search through by name.
2. Art Observed
To keep up with the latest news in the contemporary art market, check out Art Observed. This curated site takes a look at fine art, suggesting specific gallery exhibits you should see. Like Art Daily, it will keep you updated on results at auction houses such as Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Unlike Art Daily, however, it also conducts interviews and takes its own on-the-ground photos at certain shows. Though based in New York, this blog does a stellar job at covering major art events all around the globe. With a monthly readership of between 100,000 and 200,000 art enthusiasts, Art Observed is a major source of news for those with a penchant for contemporary art.
TIp: If you enjoy this site, check out Art Observed’s Links section where they’ve listed out, in alphabetical order, some similar art related websites you can explore.
NotCot is your go-to site if you love discovering new experiences related to design, art, architecture and technology. Arranged in neat boxes, its photos are clickable which means you can dive deeper and find out more about the item if you so wish. As a “visual filtration” of ideas, NotCot is one of the best sites to find creative inspiration, to see what the latest trends are and to hear just what everyone’s talking about. From unbelievable art to memorable experiences, NotCot will open your eyes up to a whole new world of possibilities.
