Placing Over 20,000 Artworks on the Maps
The Tate owns over 70,000 works of art. 23,000 of the artworks have been associated with a location, either through information in the work's title, description or as depicted in the artwork itself.
Tate Artmaps is a Google Map of the Tate artworks that have been geotagged. You can search the map by location to find geo-tagged art associated with the area. Alternatively you can search for artwork by your favorite artist.
If your search reveals a Tate owned artwork that hasn't already been geo-tagged you can help to geo-tag it by placing a marker on the Google Map (assuming the artwork is associated with a location).
