With Artwork Archive, Collectors have the ability to share their collection with others by creating a Public Profile. Or, they can keep their collection private and share with only a close network using either a Password Protected Public Profile or by creating a Private Room.
*Private Rooms are a premium feature available on Collector Plus and Premier accounts. It is available on all Organization plans. When subscribed to one of the aforementioned plans, there is no limit to the number of Private Rooms that can be created. Upgrade your plan to unlock this feature.
Find out below how to publicly and privately share your collection and learn about additional features such as My Posts to share Art World driven news, build connections and gain exposure of your collection with Artwork Archive.
Sharing Works Using Your Public Profile
By default, all of your information in Artwork Archive is completely private. We do, however, offer a Public Profile option if you want to share select pieces to the public. Everything else stays protected behind your login and password. To select to make your Profile Public, see more information here.
On the left-hand menu, My Profile allows you to build out your profile information, and select pieces or Collections that you want to mark as public. The Public Profile is an easy way to showcase your collection and give a more in depth view of what your collection is about or why you collect. You are also able to link your social media accounts or share resources you look at to stay up to date within the Art Market. If you are looking for a way to gain exposure for the collection you've worked so hard to build, this feature is a simple and elegant way to do so.
Note: You can choose how you want your pieces to be viewed and sorted as well as what kind of information you want the public to see. Learn more here.
How to Password Protect Your Public Profile
You can choose to share your Public Profile with key collectors, institutions and clients by password protecting your profile. Here's how:
Click on My Profile in the left-side menu
Click on the Public Settings button at the top
Check the box Make my profile public.
Scroll to the Public Profile Options and check the box Password Protect your Public Page in the upper right-hand corner
Enter a secure password and hit Save.
You can now share your profile with your close network and only those with access to the password will be able to view it. You can also click View Profile at the top right-hand corner of this page to preview how recipients will see your profile at anytime.
