Why we love it

ArtPassport is a godsend for serious art lovers who for one reason or another cannot visit modern and contemporary art exhibitions held in galleries across the globe. It’s an excellent way of discovering and learning more about artists and their works, most especially with its 360-degree views of featured exhibitions. But in its initial version, the app may fall short of expectations. For one thing, it doesn’t have a search function for finding exhibitions of specific artists or galleries. For another, it doesn’t enable users to find nearby exhibitions, which can be a boon to traveling art aficionados. But the most glaring omission is support for zooming in 360-degree views, leaving users to content themselves with looking at small works of art from a considerable distance.
