The Collections Portal is a self-service system which allows collections to manage their data and add artworks to Art UK. Using the Portal, collections can:

  • Add new artworks, one-by-one
  • Edit existing artworks
  • Change information about venues that are managed by the collection
  • Add images and logos

We encourage all collections to add new acquisitions in oil and acrylic, and new sculpture, and to keep their records up-to-date.

Our Partner and Founder Partner collections may also add drawings, watercolours, prints and collage.

Adding a batch of artworks

If you want to add a large number of artworks, please get in touch ( Rather than adding them one-by-one through the Collections Portal, Art UK can add them all at once, on your behalf. Just send us the data and images and we’ll do the rest. We’ll take either your raw data or can provide a spreadsheet template to fill in.

How to access the Collections Portal

We give access to the Collections Portal and analytics page when an updated Art UK agreement has been signed for the collection. Art UK will email our lead contact (e.g. a curator) to notify them about access. The login details will be the same as for accessing Art Detective.

The Collections Portal can be accessed by logging into Art UK using a designated collection account. Click the 'SIGN IN' button in the top corner of Art UK. Once signed in, the Collections Portal menu appears in the top-right corner.



Partner and Founder Partner collections may also access analytics and statistics pages, on request. 

If you have any questions about using or accessing the Collections Portal, please email
