Need help navigating the ample arts scene on Cape Cod? The Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard chambers of commerce have launched a new “Arts App” to bring the Cape and the island’s galleries, museums, studios, performing arts and art-related events to your fingertips.

There are three separate ones: ArtsApp Cape Cod, ArtsApp Nantucket and ArtsApp Martha’s Vineyard. The free apps are downloadable from all mobile devices and accessible from any PC. Each includes a map, directory of artists and attractions, event calendar and current news. You can search for things like local painters or potters, concerts or lectures, and the apps also feature geo-locational awareness, detecting your location and giving events and venues within your vicinity. New entries are constantly being added.

The Apps were developed by TapWalk, a Boston-based high tech company, with funding from a Mass Cultural Council grant. The project is a joint collaboration between the chambers, Coastal Community Capital, Inc., and The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. You can find the apps in the iTunes app store by searching ArtsApp Cape Cod, ArtsApp Nantucket or ArtsApp Martha’s Vineyard.
