Quad City Arts announces the launch of the Artist Index, inviting artists to create a profile on their searchable platform with a built-in filtering system. This digital platform is completely FREE and is meant to be a resource for the community. The index can aid in searching for artists to hire for commissions, purchasing regional art, getting hired for corporate/city projects, or just exploring and seeing the talent in our region.
Quad City Arts will use this index when clients approach them looking for artists and commissioned works, being listed will be beneficial and lucrative to artists who choose to be a part of this index. This searchable platform has been the center of input sessions for several years. The goal is to provide more business for the artists in our community by making them more accessible to the public. The Artist Index platform is open to all artists that are 18 years old or older, with original works of art, residing within a 250-mile radius, the current area that Quad City Arts services.
Quad City Arts helps businesses find art that represents their company culture, their community, and their aesthetic. A sample of previous projects includes:
The index has been a project crafted by long-time art supporter, Twin State Technical Services. A project that has taken roughly nine months to complete between developing, testing, and further alternations. Quad City Arts hopes that this platform is as inclusive as it can be to all artists in the region. Creating a robust index will allow them to be better advocates for creatives in the area, connect artists with clients, and show off the creative backbone that makes our region unique!
The public can access the platform directly by going to:
