Art Cyclopedia is a resource acting as a wiki for the arts. It looks and feels like a web directory exclusively tailored for art works, artists and art-related articles. While its design is pretty standard and doesn’t take advantage of modern web technologies, it manages to successfully deliver its content in a friendly, intuitive manner. You can find three main things on the website: artists, artworks and museums or art exhibitions. The search features are offered on the main page. All access to the website is free for the general public and the images presented are of high quality.

The most interesting thing about Art Cyclopedia is that it offers over 9,000 individual artists listed on this website. Not only that, but the part which acts as a web directory for the arts has over 2,900 sites indexed and listed. Over a staggering total of 160,000 of links to artworks, artist websites or museum websites are also offered, making this particular resource a worthwhile one if you’re a fan of the arts or need to do a bit of digging.
