What are the great arts websites?
November 29, 2006 6:59 AM   Subscribe

Is there a Flickr for culture and the arts? What about a Wikipedia?

What are your favourite websites about art/culture (by which I mean everything from sculpture to performance art to music...); what makes you go back to them?

I'm interested in where people go online both to learn about art and to create it.

There's so much stuff around about technology, but I'm kind of at a loss about where to start with the arts.

I suppose a website like Flickr, is the sort of thing I mean, is there something like that for users to share and discuss their art; and is there somewhere users can learn about techniques and the history of different forms of art?

http://aurgasm.us/ : exposes me to new, often excellent music.

http://drawn.ca/ : filled with excellent, if mostly "cartoony" art.

http://mocoloco.com/
: Makes me wish I was rich.

And, of course what Prostyle said. My wife and I have bought two prints from there and we love them.

For photography (besides flickr) I really like Jpg Magazine.

Second WetCanvas; it's a great site for beginning to intermediate artists to share and get a lot of good advice. There are pros on there too, and they are just as helpful, but the majority seem to be hobbyists.
