Sony is now bringing the museum experience, which explores the singer's life via various media and memorabilia, straight to audiences' phones, making art more accessible to a wider audience

The ‘David Bowie Is' exhibit was a smashing success, appearing in 12 different museums before ending its five-year run this July. With a recently launched app, Sony Music is now making the exhibit accessible via mobile for those who could not see it in person.

The $8 app can be accessed through both Android and iOS. Those who download it will be able to view various items from the exhibit, from the artist's costumes and photos to handwritten notes and videos, also incorporating items exclusive to the Brooklyn Museum, one of the locations where the exhibit took place, as well as app-exclusive experiences.

The virtual tour also features narration by actor Gary Oldham. Sony intends for this mobile activation to carry cultural experiences to broader audiences, democratizing access to art by bringing it to the smaller stage right in people's pockets. A virtual-reality version of the app, announced last year, is still slated to be released at an unspecified point in the future.
