SAIC Student Cari Sacks Launches App to Assist Art Buyers

SAIC student Cari Sacks (MA 2015) was featured in a recent Crain’s Chicago Business profile for solving an age-old problem with digital technology. She recently launched an app to help art collectors determine how a piece of art will look in their home before they buy it. In an interview with Crain’s, Sacks says, "I thought if I had a problem moving art around, other people must, too." She told the publication that she knew nothing about building an app, but thought her studies in art "could be put to good use." The app, Curate, is free and available for download on iTunes.
