About ArtGeek

Plain and simple:  we're art geeks!

What makes an art geek? 

If you enjoy art museums and going to special exhibitions, you're an art geek!

When we travel, we go to the "go-to" museums, but we also look for lesser-known ones. 

There are hundreds of hidden gems around the U.S., showing fantastic exhibitions; but finding them has often been a question of luck or perseverance. 

That's why we decided to create an art search engine -- for art geeks, by art geeks! 

NOW

We're just getting started,  bringing you a complete and accurate directory of the temporary art exhibitions scheduled at museums across the United States. 

Now you can easily find the art exhibitions you’re interested in, anywhere in the country  ... searching by location and/or by dates and/or by the type of art you want to see.

Museums

So far the ArtGeek database holds almost 1200 American museums, sculpture gardens, and other not-for-profit venues that host art exhibitions.

We're adding more as we learn about them, so if you know of a non-commercial art venue that isn't listed here, please tell us about it! 


Please support our Champion Museums. 

These museums help make it possible to to provide free access to the ArtGeek search engine:


Fairfield University Art Museum,  Fairfield CT

The Kimbell Art Museum,  Ft.Worth TX

Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art,  Kansas City MO

National Museum of Wildlife Art,  Jackson WY

Exhibitions 

We regularly re-visit the websites of these 1200 museums to add their newly-scheduled art exhibits to our database. Approximately 3500 current or upcoming exhibitions are listed on the search engine at any given time.  


We publish new content every day!


Books

For your convenience, we offer exhibition catalogs and art-related publications for sale. Books are selected for their relevance to listed exhibitions and museums. We also suggest destination guidebooks that we think might be helpful to art-oriented travelers.

Every purchase of a book made through the ArtGeek.art website contributes to our income, allowing us to continue to offer free access to the exhibition directory. Through an affiliation with Amazon.com, we receive a small commission on everything you buy via a link to Amazon from our site. (See Affiliate Disclosure). Linking through from our site takes you to Amazon on your existing account, so your Prime membership and other Amazon benefits apply.

LATER

We’ve got big ideas for the future.  We're thinking about… 

  • culture-travel planning resources 
  • covering museums in other English-language countries, and eventually worldwide
  • reviews and articles about exhibitions, art and artists 
  • a comprehensive, searchable art books and culture-travel bookstore 
  • social networking for art geeks  
  • art tours and itineraries ... 


We hope you’ll find ArtGeek.art useful – again and again – and that you’ll tell your friends about the site.
