• USEUM: The World's Museum of Art •
USEUM (useum.org) is a digital museum of art exhibiting 50,000 artworks by 4,500 artists and countless museums from 105 countries. Its purpose is to make art more accessible to the widest audience possible by leveraging the power of crowdsourcing and social networking. With art lovers residing at the very heart of this platform, USEUM relies on the participation of every single user who is eager to contribute. The curation and expansion of its vast collection is a result of their ratings, tags, hearts and shares, while the active collaboration with art museums, art galleries and individual artists creates a vibrant collection built on meritocracy. Furthermore, USEUM is the first ever collection featuring Old Masters and contemporary artists side by side to provide a continuum of painting, drawing and illustration from the 14th century up to the present day. As we live in an era where traction speaks louder than words, the vision and the constitutional aim of USEUM is to blend the traditions of the art establishment with the empowering impulse of social media. By activating art lovers and acclaiming artists everybody on USEUM celebrates art, intuitively redefining the values of the Art Market of the future.
