Best App for Art Smarties
What's On? Flick through the museums and galleries in your city. The Venues screen lists alphabetically, while Nearby shows the closest places. Tap a venue to see what's on now. You can also search other cities, or filter for specific venues. Be prepared to wait the very first time you load info for a city—it takes a few minutes to transfer this mother lode of art info. Once loaded, though, the app is peppy and convenient.
The Skinny: The Calendar screen shows events and openings in the area, and you can filter for specific dates or cities. Tap the event to see exhibition details. The app lets you bookmark shows and venues you don't want to miss, and you can also browse by artist names to see upcoming shows or to find out what gallery represents them in your city.
