Frequently Asked Questions
What happens to my artwork when I cancel my membership?
The only thing that changes when you cancel your membership is you lose edit access to your space. If your world has been published, it will remain accessible indefinitely from the normal URL. You can still view your edit page and download any assets you have uploaded to New Art City. You will regain edit access if you sign back up.
Are virtual exhibitions accessible to everyone?
Our no-code editor makes it easy for anybody to build a 3D website regardless of prior experience with 3D modeling or game design. Anybody can visit a New Art City exhibition after it is published using web browsers and mobile devices. Our catalog view is designed to be accessible for visitors who use screen readers.
What is the difference between a space and a world in New Art City?
Worlds are containers for spaces. For exhibitions which require more than one 3D space, they are grouped within worlds. For example each artist in a group show could have a space in a world for the exhibition, or artworks could be grouped thematically in different spaces.
Which exhibitions are posted to the homepage?
While all published exhibitions are available at their URLs, the shows on the New Art City homepage are subject to our curatorial discretion. Submit your space for review and promotion and we will promote work which meets our curation goals.
Can I sell my art on New Art City?
We have no built-in tools for e-commerce or NFT sales, but each artwork object on New Art City has a hyperlink field which allows you to link to any external site where you are selling your work.
What are the communication features?
When you sign up and create a handle, it becomes visible over your avatar and in the chat window of each space. Every space has a built in group chat, and a guestbook where visitors can leave comments and screenshots taken in the space.
What does my membership contribution to new New Art City support?
Support from our users enables us to continue building the core functionality of the toolkit. We also reinvest contributions to develop our artist residency and accessibility program.
