In the last few years, SoHo has become a neighborhood that is a window to the world. SoHo is exploding with world-class fashion and design. For those who fret, Art is Art and we'll do Chelsea, too. But, now, our interactive map of SoHo is starting to become more fun to use, and more useful,too: as more merchants go online we are linking to them, creating a directory of SoHo shopping that is easy to use and built for discovery. Travel the map, and spread the word...

Content here at ArtSEENsoHo is organized into three main areas: ART, STYLE, and LIFE - all of it accessible from the map. ART includes current exhibitions, an archive of exhibitions past, seasonal schedules, and projects. We present as many selected shows as our time and resources allow. Projects offers artwork created specifically for the Web, through selected links to the best webwork we've come across. STYLE includes Design, Fashion, Food+Drink, and Travel+Services. STYLE now includes VIEWPOINTS in which real people pass along their recommendations. Thirdly, there's LIFE for readings from Pessoa to Picasso.

There is a lot to explore and discover here. To make navigation easy, please CHOOSE FRAMES. We hope you find ArtSEENsoHo to be fast, easy to use and content-rich. We want you to return often, and explore... Welcome.

Our interactive map is a unique navigational tool: part guide, part index, part directory, and illustrated with images belonging to each block. The streets of ARTseenSOHO are designed for ease of exploration: all content areas are accessible from the streets, and all galleries, merchants, bars and restaurants are listed in their actual locations. You can browse our virtual neighborhood...

Traverse EAST-WEST streets simply by clicking on the orange arrows pointing the way, turn CORNERS by clicking on your crosstreet destination, and travel on the NORTH-SOUTH streets by scrolling.

These three dots represent the ART index (green), STYLE index (yellow), and LIFE index (red). You can click on them wherever they appear on the map and access the appropriate ARTseenSOHO index page.


Optimum Viewing

ARTseenSOHO utilizes some JavaScript and is best viewed on Netscape 3.0 and above or Internet Explorer 3.0 and above. The site is designed in Netscape 4.0 on a Mac, and double-checked with Internet Explorer 3.0. If you're still using an early generation browser, the first thing to do is go to Netscape or Microsoft and DOWNLOAD A CURRENT BROWSER! You won't be sorry.

ARTseenSOHO is designed for a viewing screen of approximately 640x480 pixels, with your browser window as open as possible.

NOTE ON FONT SIZING: The text in ARTseenSOHO is best displayed when both the proportional and fixed fonts are set at 12 point.

Memory Management

NOTE: Maximize your browser's memory, and take advantage of the possibilities. For example: 1) Before you open Netscape, highlight it and select Get info from your menubar - set the browser's memory requirements to at least 9M. Then, open Netscape. Go to Network Preferences... under Options, and set the cache size to 5M or more. The more memory allocated, the better the browser performs.


Bells and whistles! Some cool things mean a short wait (like Shockwave files or Quicktime VR Panoramas), but we do not offer these optional experiences if the wait isn't worth it. Plug-ins increase the functionality of your browser. You do not need these to enjoy ARTseenSOHO, but go from here to get the optional plug-ins needed to experience EVERYTHING we offer.
