ARTINFO joined the list of media entities checking in with location-based mobile application foursquare, and the Louise Blouin Media-owned publication will contribute tips and hints on art galleries, museums, restaurants, art neighborhoods, and cultural spots.
The foursquare arrangement was announced simultaneously with the news that art blogger Tyler Green will bring his Modern Art Notes blog to ARTINFO. Recommended reading: Green’s “hand-written” post on the move.
On the foursquare partnership, Louise Blouin Media chairman and CEO Louise Blouin said:
Spearheading the social-media platform within the arts community is a welcomed challenge as we aim to engage cultural dialogue beyond all borders, even those that are digital. foursquare embodies one of the leading social-media innovations that will undoubtedly be engaged by our wide-reaching global audience.
