As your key to the world of art, TheArtKey.com not only provides access to thousands of galleries, museums, artworks and artists around the globe. It also offers you excellent features to expand your professional network for visual art and to stay updated on what's happening. Here are some of these features:
Favourites: You can mark galleries, museums, artworks and artists as your favourites. First, you have quick access to your list of favourites from your MyPage (see link in the menu bar). Second, activities of your favourites such as uploading new events, news articles or new artworks are reported in your favourites' newsfeed on your MyPage. This way, you always know what's happening on your favourites' profiles.
Contacts: A contact relationship is always based on a contact request and contact confirmation. You can send contact request to any individual with a profile on TheArtKey.com. First, you have quick access to your contacts from your MyPage. Second, activities of your contacts are reported in your contacts' newsfeed on your MyPage. As contact relationships are only established when both parties have confirmed, the newsfeed is more comprehensive than the favourites' newsfeed. You are also informed about new contact's of your contacts, about comments on artworks or blogs of your contacts, etc.
Send message: You can send messages to all institutions (e.g. galleries, museums) and individuals with a profile on TheArtKey.com. You can write, edit and manage these messages in the message system of TheArtKey.com.
I plan to visit: You can mark each event on TheArtKey.com with "I plan to visit". A list of all (current and future) events listed this way is shown on your MyPage. In addition, you will also see if other people have marked the same event with "I plan to visit". This gives you the opportunity to contact people who like the same events and artworks as you do.
I like this: You find "I like this" buttons for events or artworks to express your sympathy with the creator of the event or artwork and encourage her or him to continue with her or his work. Besides, you will be shown in on your MyPage people you might be interested in as these people like the same events or artworks as you do.
Tell a friend: Last but not lease you find buttons to "Tell a friend" about news, events, artists, artworks or TheArtKey.com (see button on your MyPage) that might be of interest to a friend of yours.
