ArtSlant calendar and venue listings are split into two basic venue types: Key Venues and All Venues.
WHAT IS A KEY VENUE?
Key Venues are the established contemporary art galleries and museums, as identified by ArtSlant's editorial team. These designations as a way to assist our audience in navigating the extensive exhibition and venue listings on ArtSlant.
Key Venues are denoted by a small checkmark next to the gallery or museum's name in our venue listings and on our maps. For example:
