This holiday season, check out “Behind the Screen: Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas” at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas, “An Antique Christmas” at the Taft Museum in Cincinnati, “A Brandywine Christmas” at Brandywine River Museum, Chadds Ford PA, explore “Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World” at the Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, MI, or “Home for the Holidays at Carolwood” at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. These are just a few of the 18 holiday-themed exhibits from around the country showcased on the new ArtGeek.art search engine.
For the first time, art-lovers have one-stop access to exhibition listings around the country, to help plan vacation travel as well as spontaneous weekend excursions and day-trips.
Developed by two travel-loving museum-goers (and Santa Fe locals) for people like themselves, ArtGeek.art is the first free, constantly-updated on-line directory of the thousands of temporary art exhibitions scheduled at more than 1000 US museums.
ArtGeek.art’s robust search functionality makes it easy to discover compelling exhibitions, to bookmark favorites, and to maintain a personal list of possibilities.
What this means is that instead of visiting a city and searching for what exhibits may be going on, you can check what major exhibits are underway around the country, and design a trip around it.
By using ArtGeek.art as a one-stop search engine for exhibits, art-lovers have free access to:
- 1000s of exhibition listings all in one place, simplifies discovery
- 1000+ museums nationwide, including hundreds of lesser-known gems
- The ability to search by location (state, city, museum), dates, genre, medium and artist with results displayed in a simple, easy-to-navigate format
- Bookmarking, to capture appealing listings to the user’s personal list
- Exhibition catalogs and other art book suggestions, with purchase link to Amazon
- On-the-go discovery with the site’s fully-optimized mobile platform
To demonstrate the power of ArtGeek’s searchable database, and as a tribute to the many spectacular holiday displays around the country, its editors curated a wonder-filled list of holiday activities: 12 holiday-themed exhibitions and displays
And because there are some “must-see” art exhibitions scheduled at US museums this Winter—from Caravaggio, Michelangelo and Vermeer, to Aztecs, to Oscar—its editors created a second list of highly-recommended shows art lovers will want to know about:18 outstanding exhibitions to see this winter
“Whether planning a trip to California, New York City, or anywhere in-between, ArtGeek makes it easy and fun for art-lovers to discover art exhibitions of any type, anywhere, any time. It’s a site art-lovers will return to time and again to plan vacation travel and special art trips.”
