ArtLens allows you to personalize your experience at the museum. You can use ArtLens to delve into layers of interpretative content on a variety of works in the collection. Once you’re at the museum, you can use it in Gallery One, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s innovative gallery featuring art, technology, and interpretation, as well as in the other museum galleries.
The application has five main features:
Near You Now – Using the museum’s indoor wayfinding technology, you can discover works in the collection that have interpretive content, such as film and audio, in any gallery. You can also use this feature to browse through the collection on a path you set yourself in the museum.
Scanning – Employing innovative image recognition software, ArtLens can recognize works in the collection seamlessly, offering access to additional interpretive content. A blue icon indicates which works have this feature. This content is only available on-site.
Tours – Select from both museum-created and visitor-created tours. The mapping feature in ArtLens helps visitors locate specific artworks and navigate tours.
Today – Get a daily snapshot of exhibitions and events occurring at the museum.
Favorites – Save favorite works of art and share through Facebook or Twitter. You can also create personalized tours which can be shared with other visitors.
Launch the app, but be patient! The first time you launch ArtLens, it may take 20 or more minutes to install and upload the collection to provide a more streamlined experience, but, we promise, it’s worth the wait.
Fixed bug where map icons on tour pages would not show up in some cases.
