Artsy: a new site for discovering art on the internet

Artsy has been my guilty pleasure for a few months now - perfect for procrastination, but also very educational and a great way to keep track of my favorite artists.

How to describe Artsy? Think of Pandora (the internet radio that touts itself as the "music genome project") for the art world.  On artsy, you can follow a list of artists (the ones you know you like) and also follow "genes" (a specific movement, theme, medium, or subject). Artsy also tells you if a particular artwork is for sale--although as a postdoc most of the pieces I like are waaaay out of my budget...

I've discovered so many new artists lately through Artsy! One feed I definitely recommend is Contemporary Chinese Art.
