Surfer's List to Art on the Web

This list is updated occasionally. If you have any ideas or wishes considering this site, or if you find dead links, please contact

| Art Navigator | | UIAH Home |

Art History Webmasters Association, AHWA

"Reserch and Communication Tools in Art History."
Loads of links to art periods, art history courses, departments, etc. This site hopefully takes care of this field once and for all if we really have an association of webmasters at it? Please let it be!

Art History Resources on the Web

Extensive site from Sweet Briar Collage, Virginia. This site is listed in the AHWA site above and itself links there. I chose this site because it was the only one listed as superb in the section on Art and Art History in the Collection by Subject compiled by the University of Buffalo's Lockwood Library which in turn I found by searching for sites that link to the list you are just reading.


A large collection of links to art web sites in alphabetical order.
The site is by and includes lots of other material, too.


For a professionally reviewed list of art sites the BBC is probably hard to match.

Their Webguide has a section on Art & Culture which leads to a larger list Art & Design (?).

Then also their Webguide's section Education leeds to Education Categories which then allows you to chose Art where you can chose your level. Chose Adult Art (?) and presto you get another well edited list of art sites.
(The BBC obviously favors education so the lists for schools are very goo, too.)

These two lists overlap occasionally, as far as I can tell.

(I'm happy to note that even the BBC doesn't attempt to categorize sites, which I've given up any hope of doing ages ago. But then again, they are not quirky and their links don't go stale as easily as on this list.)

The Civilized Explorer - Art on the Internet

A list very like the one you are reading. Interesting links with comments and probably updated regularly.
Found from Britannica, Encyclopaedia Britannica's Internet Guide(!), which also has an Arts and Entertainment (sic) section worth watching. Britannica looks like it will be very good, go check it out.

The Useless Pages

For those rainy days when the web is just too much you might try this site. The section Pi and its friends features "Pi - The movie" a major minor masterpiece in film without film.
In the section "Cows" you can check out the lastest in Cow tipping.
What has this to do with ART? Well, the first time I helped a real artist use the web, he needed a reminder on what the pattern on cow hides looks like for decorating his ceramics. We happily opened a search engine and typed in "cow". Don't try it.

Artfaces Artplaces

" featuring artists from across the USA & Canada..."
Lots of editorial content.
The site has originated from art discussions on two AOL art message boards.

Open Directory

"The Open Directory Project's goal is to produce the most comprehensive directory of the web, by relying on a vast army of voluteer editors".
See the Arts section.
A long time ago the Virtual Library tried to do this but apparently got swamped with the volume.
Now Netscape and Mozilla are working on this excellent idea.

Art Brut, Self-taught Art, Folk Art, Roadside art,...

Raw Vision
Raw Vision is a magazine for outsider art. The link list that they maintain should cover the field.
Selected by UNESCO as the World's Best Art Magazine 1998.
(I did search the net for "Prix Camera" and the complex UNESCO site to give you other award winners. No luck.)

The Outsider Pages & Roadside Art Online
Articles and presentations of artists.
This site includes the truly "Comprehensive web guide to folk and outsider art online"

If you really enjoy this kind of art, you can go to one of the electronic auction sites. ebay has the section Antiques:Folk Art and a gallery option that allows you to view the vast number of items on sale. Old Saw with Hand Painted Texas Farm Scene, anyone? Check out the Collectibles:Art section, too.

World Heritage

Unesco maintains a list of World Heritage sites. I have linked directly to the list that they maintain. Their own World Heritage main page is one of those bloated "good surfing experience" things that evolve with time.
A few months later I've come across another list of Unesco World Heritage Sites
by Lynn Garry Salmon. This one will probably keep things simple.
From Finland e.g. Suomenlinna is on this list.

Webtools, Javadirectory

A directory of Java applications. Go see the Arts and Entertainment section.
Lots of stuff. Quality and usefulness varies. You need good internet connections and a powerful machine running java, but I found atleast one gem and didn't then have time to look further.
Good grief! I've just spent hours designing new wallpapers, textile patterns and snowflakes with the The Escher Web Sketch program. Fun. Kids will love this, too.
Go check out the other listed programs yourself. Christmas is coming and I need to sketch some gingerbreadmen chains ...


Inxight is a Xerox company devoloping a new way to represent information. Check out the "Hyperbolic trees" of various art institutions, among others.
Perhaps an artist could come up with interesting ideas to use this?
Java must be enabled.


As they say "The Largest Community on the Web!". The section Arts and Litterature is impressive in its liveliness. Be prepared to spend a lot of time here and regain the joy of surfing.
One of the artists in the Soho Neigbourhood's Lofts is Susan Ritter who kindly prompted me to look in.

A site that can afford to deal with problems the way most computer people would love to can't be bad.

"Oops! Something went wrong! Our server didn't like that request...
but don't worry, as it's likely nothing too serious. You may want to simply try your request again in a few minutes, in case everything just clears up by itself."

The Mining Company

"A Site for Every Topic. An Expert Guide for Every Site."
The web really has created a new profession - Information miner. This place is very extensive. See the Arts/Entertainment section.
I must admit that I can't understand why anyone would want to be included in our Art Navigator with places like this around, but Eric Wiener who is "your Mining Co guide to New York: East Village" wants me to list East Village Experimental Gallery, "an NYC based online gallery for emerging New York artists".
So there it is with thanks for helping us find this resource.


"From Russia with Art." "Our databank contains over 700 Russian artists including 6000 images." An extensive site.

I just added a Russian site above so now I must include something from Finland's neighbour in the west. links to lots of Swedish galleries and other art sites. From here you can go to the site Stockholm - Cultural Capital of Europe 1998. (And while your at it, Finland's Helsinki is one of the nine European Cultural Capitals in the year 2000.)

The Latin Art Museum

Someone asked me by mail for links to Latin American Art. This museum has a good Latin Art link list in addition to its own collection.

WebSideStory World 1000

And now for something completely different...
"The World 1000 lists thousands of sites in 36 categories and ranks them based on the amount of traffic they receive... "
If you're just surfing and have time, see the sites where the claimed average of 4,237,737 visitors per day go.
Try the Arts section for inspiration, perhaps. Be warned, it does link things like Italian Cast Lovers (?!) among "art".

Art Newsroom - International

This looks like a very good site for the Forbes type of Art news?
(I do hope that tiny light grey text on a white background is NOT the lastest web-designer trend.)

The Alvar Aalto Centenary

This site commemorates Alvar Aalto, architect and designer.

OCAIW - Orazio Centaro's Art Images on the Web

This site links to architecture, painting, photography, and culpture images all over the web. If you are lucky and the artist you're looking for is listed, then you will find this a very good source. The sites the image links lead to are themselves often worth a good browse.

"This completely free service offers easy access to hundreds of thousands of member websites, organised by related interests into easy to travel rings."

This ring idea is very powerful.
Go see the vast Arts and Humanities, Artist or Design rings.
You'll find the Artists of the Web Ring, among others. (Perhaps those of you who are tired of my slowness in adding your site onto this list, will find a more timely service here.)

If you go through the WebRing Directory, you will also be able to see lists of the most popular sites accessed through the ring system. For Arts and Humanities | Arts they are mostly sites for pictures of naked women. Who would have guessed?
But what is this?,
Ring of Fire - Burning Man???? Go see to believe.
And Poser?
Leads to the Poser4 "The Premier 3D and character animation tool" by MetaCreations whose company page has a Community section with art examples.
I do know an art student at our university who had to move over to computer art becauce of a serious allergy. Perhaps this is an option for others, too.

Yes, this web ring thing is really intersting.

I found a ring for ex libris (bookplates), which led to the site The Art of the Ex Libris among others. I chose this one because of its excellent links to other sites. It links to Heraldry, too.

Of course, there is a seperate Heraldy and Coats of Arms Webring. I linked you to the list of this rings sites. You find the one you like.

The truly extensive Envirolink site itself is superb.

They can even afford to make links to excellent pages like
Fallingwater - (Frank Lloyd Wright) hard to find.

The Linköping Science Fiction & Fantasy Archive

If this is your thing, then this is your site.

Slawek's Guide to Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Space & Surreal Art is good, too.

(Anomalous Images and UFO files is one of the sites for the real stuff with good links to others. Alien art is still very rare even on the Web. Examples of alien design are a bit more common but are mostly pictures of transport devices. The quality of the images is often less than optimal and the sites showing them are often not reachable for some reason or other.)

Futurism - Manifestos and other resources

"Futurism was an international art movement founded in Italy in 1909. It was (and is) a refreshing contrast to the weepy sentimentalism of Romanticism. The Futurists loved noise, machines, pollution, and cities; they embraced the exciting new world that was then upon them..."

Finnish Art and Culture on the Web

While collecting material for our section "Art And Culture on the Web By Country", I noticed the lack of a proper site for Finland in English. So I have started The UIAH list of Finnish Art and Culture sites on the Web. From now on, Finnish sites will be added to this list.
