Press Release for the launch of ArtBump.com â€“ Tuesday, August 4, 2009
A new website has been launched which taps the wisdom of crowds to discover, share, and promote (bump) the best art from across the web. The site functions like Digg.com but is curated to feature only stories related to art with emphasis on artists and their work.
The process is simple. Users first setup a member account on ArtBump.com and then proceed to vote on stories that have already been submitted by other members as well as submit their own art-related stories. And since the site is a work in progress, users can suggest new categories to the webmaster if they feel the current set of categories is lacking. There are also a number of social web features such as adding friends, creating groups of like-minded art appreciators, sharing stories through your Facebook and Twitter accounts, and more.
The vision for the site is to become a website that will blow you away on any given day with the most amazing artistic content and stories from across the web. One day, you might be amazed by a photographer in China, and the next you will be touched by a dance troop in Russia or a music video out of Brazil. By tapping the wisdom of crowds, ArtBump hopes to discover, share, and promote the best art and artists from across the web and from across the world.
Please visit ArtBump.com, setup an account, and start sharing and bumping stories. Itâ€™s easy and itâ€™s good for the creative soul.
