Popwalk Patrons are those that understand the power of art to activate a community, to enrich a place, or to inform the public. Popwalk Patrons know how to leverage the power of art to enrich their environment.
Popwalk is a format in which site-specific digital art can be displayed anywhere. Much of the time artists initiate where they want the artworks to go, but individuals, municipalities, or other groups may want to use the Popwalk app to sponsor a site-specific project for a certain location or locations. Examples of this may be:
Why Use Popwalk?
Popwalk gives museums, municipalities, and companies the ability to attract audiences to places that matter. Using Popwalk also allows multiple organizations and communities to cross-pollinate audiences.
What is a sponsored work?
What does it cost to use Popwalk?
The fee varies according to how many videos are displayed in the environment and how many viewers are looking at those videos. This allows you to start small and grow your audience. In this way, you can tailor your use of Popwalk for your needs. Contact us for a price chart for sponsored projects. email@example.com
Where do you put up the works?
As you think about the possibilities of sponsoring a Popwalk project, please consider the following:
Answering these questions will give you and us a better sense of the project you are envisioning. As you are getting an idea of your vision for the project, please contact us and we will help create a project profile and put together some budget options. Popwalk is not interested in using our service to create direct advertising for a business or product.
How do you produce the videos for Popwalk?
There are two ways to produce videos for Popwalk: through commissioning works from artists and by setting up a competitive call for art. We can help you with either of these options, but generally speaking, commissioning artists is more expensive, but can get you something closer to what you are envisioning. A competitive call for art will usually get you more works, but the content of the works will be more varied. Please contact us if you have questions about this.
How do you put the works up on the app?
All works displayed on Popwalk need to be submitted and juried into the project to ensure quality and appropriateness of content. Go to the Submit Artworks Page for submission instructions.
How do you get people to see the works?
Popwalk has its own, built in audience! Of course, if you are putting up works in an area with few works, this audience will be small and need to grow organically as more artworks get put up in the region. We can help with developing new audiences and presenting this project to your existing audience.
