Cleveland Museum App Brings Art To Life

The Cleveland Museum of Art recently unveiled a new interactive gallery and an award-winning iPad app that allows visitors to customise their museum experience. Over 175 images from the Bridgeman archive were licensed for this unique project.

A marriage of art, technology and a heavy dose of user interpretation, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s new Gallery One interactive and accompanying ArtLens iPad app are truly amazing. The ArtLens app allows museum fans to personalise their experience with the collection both at home and while visiting the museum. Users can find out more about their favourite works with layers of interactive content, and while visiting the museum the app can be used in Gallery One and throughout the permanent collection to enhance their experience. If you find yourself lost in the galleries, the Near You Now feature will identify where you are and point out works in the vicinity, and provide additional context to help you “discover” old favourites as well as works new to you.

In 2013, the Cleveland Museum of Art received four awards from AAM’s Media & Technology Committee, including the Bronze MUSE Award for Mobile Applications for ArtLens and the Gold MUSE Award for Interpretive Interactive Installations for Gallery One. Read more about Gallery One and ArtLens.

Over 175 Bridgeman images were used in the multimedia interpretive content produced for the Cleveland Museum of Art’s ArtLens iPad app and Gallery One interactive.
