Sidebars_aboutproj
MUSEY uses mobile and web technologies to increase awareness of and financial support to independent artists and arts organizations outside of traditional museums, concert halls and institutions. Many of these artists, organizations and festivals struggle with declining federal funding for the arts in the U.S. We believe that app technology today can be used to create a new group of "spontaneous micro patrons of the arts" that fund and support the art they encounter outside of museum walls. MUSEY is a collaborative effort led by a team of designers, thinkers, technologists, artists and community arts organizers.

Sidebars_challenge

MUSEY is interested in solutions to these questions: How can we harness technology today to support and sustain art that is free and open to the public? How can independent artists find new ways to fund their projects in the public domain? How can we connect with and support our local community of artists and performers?

 
Sidebars_solution

MUSEY is a web-based and mobile-app solution that informs, educates and creates new supporters of the arts. Users find art in their current location in real-time, learn more about it, and can become "spontaneous micro-patrons" of the arts. Artists present their work to wider audiences and fuel their projects financially.
