Ideum has partnered with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art to navigate their extensive State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now exhibition, running from September 13, 2014 to January 19, 2015.
We are collaborating with Crystal Bridges in the creation of a custom software application that will allow visitors to go beyond the works in the gallery and explore each of the 100 American artists in the State of the Art exhibit in more detail, complete with works that are not on physical display in the museum.
The exhibit spans a variety of medium, from more traditional painting and sculpture to installation and new media works – the custom application gives viewers the ability to view works of all types in one convenient location. Users navigate the US map to find artists from all over the country, learn about their motivation, view their studios, and even watch recorded interviews with the artists talking about their work. Additionally, users can find artwork and artists in their neck of the woods – by entering a zip code and an email address, they can have a custom list of galleries and museums emailed to them.
Additionally, Ideum has manufactured two custom multitouch screens to display the custom software, helping visitors investigate further into the incredible lives and artwork of these up-and-coming artists and explore what is happening today in American art.
More information about this incredible exhibit to come, as we get closer to the opening date.
