Portal to Houston’s Art CommunityNing Network Spotlight
Houston is known as one of the top cities for art in the US, and Arts Houston is a social network for artists and people who care about art in Houston. It is run by the magazine of the same name, which “aims to fill a need for a media voice dedicated to the cultural arts in order to increase the visibility of Houston as a major center for the arts.” To integrate their magazine into the social network, they have pulled the latest news from their magazine into the social network using an RSS feed.
On the social network, members trade plans about great new upcoming art events in the events category of the forum. They upload photos to help others get to know them better, from self portraits to copies of their work to art at a gallery showing.
