  • How much is your app?

    $0.00 – All Public Art is available for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

  • How did the idea come about?

    We love art. We created All Public Art to solve three simple problems:

    1. It’s always been difficult to discover new artworks that exist in public spaces and even harder to actually find their physical location. With the growing sophistication of Mobile phones, we designed APA to help you locate specific artworks that you are looking for, locate artworks that happen to be in your area, and locate artworks around the world, so that you can experience them beyond the screen of a mobile phone or computer.
    2. Exposure and financial opportunities are often challenging for artists and art-related organizations.  All Public Art created its e-commerce platform as a solution for public/street artists who want to make a living or have a side business with their creativity.  All Public Art believes that the power of technology can unleash the ability for artists to succeed and strives to help build a healthy and robust marketplace for artists. Many art-related businesses and organizations use APA due to its convenience and abundance of their target demographic.
    3. Most art-related sites and apps don’t offer all the services needed for artists. APA has optimized the experience of discovery, e-commerce, storage, and social networking all in one place so that artists and organizations can be efficient in multiple areas.
