INTERFACE MAKES USING
THE ARTS MAP EASIER
SEARCH FUNCTIONS on The Arts Map's homepage have been
redesigned to simplify the search process and enhance
the experience of users of the map. There is now just
one "search box." Two buttons allow the user
to search by location or by name. In addition, the long
list of check boxes which were a feature of the map in
its earlier configuration now only appear when a user
clicks on the "Search by Listing Category" or
"Search by Media" buttons.
"EVENTS SEARCH" OPTIONS
can now use The Arts Map to search for events in your
area or an area you are going to visit. You can search
for events by date, by type of event, or by radius
from a location of your choice. We believe this will
be an increasingly popular feature of the map so if
you have an Arts Map account, be sure to post your
events. To add an event to the map log-in to your
account and look for the "Add and Event"
links just below the section called "My Primary
Listing." Posting events is a free service of
The Arts Map.
MAILING LIST FEATURE DESIGNED TO CONNECT
LISTERS AND CLIENTS
who click on map pins or access detail pages now have
the option to ask to be added to a lister's mailing
list. When they do this, the lister will receive an
e-mail from The Arts Map with the request and any message
the user may have included with his or her request.
To make sure those e-mails are not blocked by spam filters,
listers should add email@example.com to their approved

MESSAGE FROM ROBIN & JONATHAN
LISTINGS ON THE ARTS MAP ARE NOW FREE! When we first
created The Arts Map, our primary intention was
to enable new connections between artists, arts
organizations, galleries, museums, art schools,
art materials suppliers, and the general public.
We also thought, at the time, that we might charge
for listings as a way of supporting the project.
As a result of our experience with this project,
the concept of charging for listings has been permanently
are not yet sure how The Arts Map will survive in
the future but we believe in the project and intend
to find a way to insure its continuance.
.....Thank you for being
part of The Arts Map community. The Arts Map is, and
will always be, a work in progress. We welcome your
suggestions. To send us your thoughts click
