Vivid Arts is a startup public art discovery app built to grow the arts and culture community through a connected and unified platform. The Vivid Arts app provides the culturally curious the tools to engage with the arts, share their adventures and grow the community. It also offers a feed of the I Support Street Art latest posts so you dont miss a thing while your on the go hunting street art!
Based out of West Palm Beach, Fla., Vivid Arts officially went live in April of 2016 with the goal of connecting locals to their art scene and art scenes around the world
Founder Eddy Gee always had a deep interest in arts and culture that started as a teenager listening rap songs in his room in New Jersey. That love for public art blossomed helping an artist capture video for a mural she was creating in North Carolina. Now living in South Florida’s vibrant and growing art scene with Art Basel, Art Palm Beach and now Art Fort Lauderdale, Eddy created Vivid Arts to express his love for public art by making it easy for people to connect with art locally and internationally through his tech knowledge as an app developer.
The Vivid Arts platform makes it easy for users to explore over 150 public artworks — murals and sculptures — in South Florida. Users can explore artworks pinpointed on their map, get more information on some artworks and get Google Map directions directly there.
Additionally, you can discover Vivid Arts Exclusive blogs, videos and podcasts and partner content, such as I Support Street Art, to connect with what’s going on in the arts and culture scene around you and internationally.
Recently Vivid Arts added the ‘Vivid Arts Live’ button at the bottom of their screen to enhance the arts festival experience digitally. Users will be able to use the app as a tour guide through the festivals to find out when and where certain exhibitions and shows are and much more. Additionally, users will be able to donate to the people making the experience happen as a token of appreciation.

You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
