Well, there’s no sugar-coating it—
We regret to say that we didn’t get our next rounds of funding, and so we will not be releasing Artworld in the App Store as planned. Artworld has come a long way in 10-months with a tiny team, but without funding, the ongoing labour needed to continue our work is sadly not possible.
🌈 On the bright side, we have a robust body of work ready to pick up if and when the time comes, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our friends and peers in the art world. Thank you so much for your feedback and your participation in our closed beta versions.
We will definitely be applying again to continue our work at the next available opportunity. In the meantime, we’ll be tinkering slowly on the back end, and waiting for the next funding streams to be announced. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I wish I had more answers, but look forward to continuing the project someday, some way.
Casey & the Artworld team
