Art Smart (https://www.artsmart.com/), the highly-acclaimed NYC-based art tour service, is expanding into three strategic cities: Washington, D.C., Boston, MA; and Chicago, IL; and introducing two public experiential tours – Making of Her Image and Insta-Art Hunt.
Since its founding in 2001, Art Smart has served clients primarily in New York City, or globally on special request. Art Smart offers private groups the ability to explore art and culture in a way that’s accessible, personal, and engaging and has been recognized by leading press and the public as one of the premier providers of custom art tours.
“We are thrilled to bring our Art Smart tours into these new markets and increase the availability of the uniquely personal art experiences that we provide,” says Judith Walsh, founder of Art Smart. She adds, “Art has always played a significant role in reflecting and shaping our collective identities.

We select our art historian guides both for the depth of their knowledge and their ability to conversationally engage clients ranging from individuals and families to corporate clients around their interests. When art, culture, and conversation unfold during each tour, a certain thought-provoking magic happens.”

- Insta-Art Hunt – a social-media inspired tour guided by an Art Smart art historian provides an interactive and educational museum hunt experience using Instagram. This…
