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 a website -- for art geeks, by art geeks! 

NOW

We're just getting started, with the goal of bringing you a complete and accurate directory of all the temporary art exhibitions scheduled in 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 more than 1000 American museums, sculpture gardens, and other art venues.

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!


Exhibitions 

We regularly re-visit the websites of these venues to add their newly-scheduled art exhibitions to our database. 

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 art-oriented travelers might be interested in.

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.  How about… 

  • culture-travel planning resources 
  • reviews and articles about exhibitions, art and artists 
  • a comprehensive, searchable art 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.  

With heartfelt thanks from the ArtGeek team:  Jane, Michael, Shawn, Fiz, Ian, Stede, Nagisa, Blane, and Slade
