ArtPin is a community of artists, alternative gallery spaces, and art lovers who collaborate to create unique pop-up art shows. The newest platform helps connect artists with creative alternative spaces to showcase their work including restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, homes, apartments, lofts and more. Often artists struggle to find such venues – as it is something not always marketed to the public. ArtPin streamlines the process by creating a fun and profession platform for artists and art enthusiasts to join forces.

In addition to the user friendly layout, the “Discover” tab allows its users to build and organize a comprehensive calendar of art shows, galleries and museum profiles in the area. The hub feeds all the latest happenings in your home city and also provides insight into other cities you may be traveling to.

When an artist creates an Artist’s Profile, the information is submitted to the ArtPin team of curators who are actively organizing art shows. If your work is chosen to be in a show, you receive a Show Invitation that you can either accept or deny. From street art and sculpture, to traditional landscapes and portraits – the website will pair the proper artwork with the right art show. They currently accept artists of all ages, styles, and abilities.

According to the website, some examples of shows include one-night art parties at nightclubs, hanging artwork in a hotel lobby for a month, or bringing work to a private dinner party in a collector’s home.

Businesses can also create a profile to host an art show. This type of event is a great way to draw in crowds and increase exposure for their business. From tattoo shops to cafes and hair salons, this is a great opportunity for both small and large businesses.
Looking to kick-up a dinner party or special event? Private functions can also be held at homes, making this platform a win-win for artists, art lovers and businesses all around.

TAE encourages all our participating artist and readers to check out this quickly growing platform for exciting and innovative opportunities. ArtPin is now available in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. For more information visit
