Counting on Art

Statistics can get under your skin.  If you had asked me a while ago "Do you like statistics?" I would have responded with an emphatic "No."  How wrong I would have been.

ArtSlant.com is a stat-machine.  We are continuously gathering, cataloguing, cross-referencing and cross-polinating statistical information on the art world.  In fact, we are in the midst of making this architecture much more accessible on the ArtSlant site - take note of our newly designed Profile, Venue and Exhibition pages.  These now pull in all kinds of stat-tidbits.  It's a who-did-what-with-whom without the gossip.

So to celebrate our first-year anniversary (which just zipped by almost without our having noticed it) we've developed a few interesting little charts to share with the community.  It's a kind of stat-extravaganza.

We hope you enjoy this bird's eye view, and remember we're always Counting on Art...
