.ART Registry Celebrates 7th Birthday With Over a Quarter Million Art Lovers Using the Definitive Domain

The .ART domain registry is celebrating its 7th birthday this month. Since launching on May 10, 2017, .ART has become the Internet home for over 254,000 artists, creators, museums, galleries, and institutions around the world. Over that time, the TLD has established itself as an essential digital space for artistic expression and cultural engagement. .ART earned that position by consistently leading various initiatives, leveraging the synergy between art and technology, that clearly demonstrated their commitment to nurturing a dynamic community of creatives and art enthusiasts.

Here are just a few of the many examples and milestones the registry has to celebrate today:

Art Therapy Initiative: Establishing a $1 million scholarship fund for Art Therapy graduate studies at George Washington University, .ART continues to support programs that harness creativity for healing, positively impacting lives and communities.

Presence at AAM Annual Meeting: Demonstrating ongoing support for museums and cultural institutions, .ART will again participate in the American Alliance of Museums’ annual meeting. 



Healing Powers of Art: This year, .ART was proud to have produced an impactful documentary exploring the therapeutic roles of art in mental well-being.

Digital Innovation in Art Award: For the seventh year, .ART proudly sponsors this award as part of GP Bullhound’s ALLSTARS, celebrating technological creativity in the art world. Learn more and enter here

Meet the .ARTists: A series of monthly live-streamed webinars that has elevated the profiles of diverse talents within our community. The growing awareness of .ART has attracted notable figures and businesses like Sharon Stone (SharonStone.art) and rising AI star Pika (Pika.art), underlining the expansive appeal of the .ART domain. 

Global Recognition: The .ART community has garnered attention in top publications such as The New York Times and The Guardian, featuring members like Shantell Martin, CIRCA, and participants of international biennales including Malta, Sydney, and Shanghai

.ART Publications in the Library of Congress: Our publications have been recognized by the Library of Congress including our first “.ART Odyssey: The Future of Art." Preparations for the second edition are underway for publication this fall. 

Launch of ID.art in Beta: The beta launch of ID.art marks a significant advancement in digital identity, offering innovative tools for artists and creators to showcase their work and connect globally

The .ART team also believes that the TLD's growth over the past 7 years has been fueled by the value that it brings to art lovers around the world. That comes from the .ART domain bringing a distinct layer to an online presence, signaling that one’s work is not just relevant but vital.  Looking ahead, .ART founder Ulvi Kasimo  said, “As we step into our eighth year, we remain devoted to providing a dynamic platform that empowers artistic and cultural institutions to innovate, share, and connect."
