With the James Turrell Light Art Exhibition opening to the public, the Guggenheim has launched a new free mobile app. The Bloomberg sponsored Guggenheim app is available via guggenheim.org/apps and features educational information about the installations and past exhibits at museum, artist/curator/designer interviews, multimedia guides, and other elements that will add to the visitor experience.
App users now have the ability to create "virtual collections" of their favorite works from the collections at the Guggenheim. For those running Apple IOS, the app includes audio transcripts and closed-captioning for video interviews and content for those with impairments. For museum guests that don't own the technology to download the app, the Guggenheim offers free borrowing at the Multimedia Guide desk and $1 headphone purchasing options.
The application is available for download now and "James Turrell" opens June 21. Check out the images above of some of Turrell's installations from this highly anticipated exhibition.
