Public Access to Our Public Presence: Sharing Our API

An API is a means of communication between systems that’s ubiquitous today—it’s how your smartwatch talks to your phone, how your phone shows your Instagram feed, and how our website communicates with our search engine. It’s also the mechanism that allows you to search for articles and artworks together in our website’s global search and to find artworks related to the ones you’ve viewed. It’s allowed us to build cool functions into the site, like the ability to search by color, and to develop a Chrome extension that displays a randomly selected work of art each time you open a new tab. We’ve even built a script that displays works of art using only text characters (if you don’t know what this means exactly, know that programmers’ minds are usually blown when we tell them about this huge engineering feat).
