About us

Online since 2010, ArtAround is a nonprofit archival project which functions as a digital map & community. With thousands of artworks mapped and tagged, you can find public art by color or content, and anyone can upload new art, however they see it.

But we can’t do any of this without your help

As a fiscally-sponsored nonprofit, ArtAround is a labor of love that relies on the generosity of our amazing community of supporters. A donation—in any amount—helps keep ArtAround online and accessible to all.

If your organization or business is interested in archiving the art in your neighborhood, become an Acquisition, Archival, or App Sponsor and bring your community’s art to the map.
