Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When checking in to an ArtPass business, why is the QR code asking for my name and location?
TVC uses this information to track how many people are using the Membership Program and which businesses are being visited for assessing program needs.
Q: I don’t feel comfortable using the QR code attendance log.
That’s okay! You can also quickly log your visit by going to www.bit.ly/artpass-checkin and recording the business and day you visited without using any personal information.
Q: Is there a limit to the number of times I can use my ArtPass at one business?
Nope! As long as your membership is active, you can use your ArtPass as many times as you like at your favorite business.
Q: How are Business Partner’s selected?
TVC partners with independently-owned businesses within Washington County involved in contributing to the creative community.
Q: Do the special offers ever change?
Yes this can happen! When businesses join the ArtPass Program, they commit to being a partner for 1 year. After that year they can choose to renew or change the special deal they offer. For this reason, the special offers depend on the current businesses participating in the ArtPass Program.
Q: I had a great experience at a business! How can I let them know?
Our ArtPass Directory has a place where you can leave reviews and comments on the businesses you’ve visited. We love to see your feedback so be sure to check it out!
