40-Foot Touch Screen Lets Visitors Discover Museum Collections
The Cleveland Museum of Art has installed the 'Collection Wall' that will allow visitors to customize tours and download them onto iPads.
The Cleveland Museum of Art has opened a unique and interactive gallery that blends art and technology. Gallery One features a 40-foot multi-touch screen (the largest in the U.S.), which lets visitors explore over 3,500 objects from the museum’s permanent collection.
Up to 16 visitors can use this ‘Collection Wall’ at a time, exploring images of the pieces and reading information about them. The microtile wall features works of art that rotate by theme and type (such as time period, materials, and techniques), as well as curated views of the collection.
