For Arts Organizations

ArtsNashville mobile app screenshotMetro Arts is creating a cultural guide to the city that you can access right from your smartphone or tablet and we want to include YOU! We are beta-testing the mobile website,

It currently features the Metro Arts Public Art Collection, driving, walking and biking tours as well as Geo-Alerts for each point of interest. The Geo-Alerts ping users to let them know what public art and cultural destinations that they are near.

We are working to load the app with the Art in Public Places database and the next step is featuring our nonprofit arts organization partners. The final product will be a user-friendly mobile guide to all of the amazing arts and cultural places in our city! We hope residents and tourists alike will find it useful.

Please fill out this informational form so that we can feature your organization. Later this summer, promotional materials will be made available to you for promotion of the app. We hope you’ll post these within your facility as well as on your web site and social media sites.


Nonprofit arts organizations, with a public facility, located within Nashville/Davidson County are eligible to apply to be featured in the mobile app. Metro Arts reserves the right to determine content that is featured in the ArtsNashville mobile app.

At this time, we are not featuring for profit arts spaces or nonprofit organizations who do not have a physical open-to-the-public location. We hope to add for profit arts organizations into later phases of app development. If you would like to be made aware of that application process, please email us.

For arts and entertainment events and showtimes, we’ll continue to direct people to our official online calendar partner at

The ArtsNashville mobile app is funded in part by a Frist Foundation Technology Grant.

In Tennessee, specialty license plates are more than just automotive accessories. They are the lifeline for the core of our culture — the arts.

Specialty license plates support the Tennessee Arts Commission, which provides funding to artists, schools and art organizations across our state.
