    "Art is everywhere, but I like seeing curated works that have the educational information behind it. This is great as well because I can actually afford some of the pieces listed, which is a nice touch. You know the art is verified, and you can learn about the history right here on the Artsy website. "

    "I recommend this app to anyone who wishes to discover art (Google Art collaborates with over 1,200 international museums and galleries) but also because its last update integrates a funny feature that let you know which character of a painting you look like. Curious, indeed!"

    "DeviantArt is a wonderful online resource for art that's a bit more out of the mainstream. Whether it's fantasy art, anime, video game art or whatever, there are thousands of artists on the site who display and share their work, looking for feedback. It's a great place for beginners and experts alike to share what they're working on. The community of users is very helpful and welcoming. Also, many of the artists are also available to hire -- so if you're looking for an artist for a project, this is the site to go to. "

    "CGHub is not a useful solution for me because it seems to have been shut down. I click on the link and I just find a site called Chemtrails Are Demonic, which appears to be either insanity or trolling. It's not at all useful. I'd rather not deal with it. It's actually a fun site of you like to make fun of stuff like that, but it's not a solution for my problem. "
