Lyman Allyn Art Museum has launched their new mobile app with Cuseum in conjunction with the opening of the permanent collection American Perspectives! The app features tours of the galleries, as well as additional information on the works of art, a map of the museum, and the ability to comment on, share, and save your favorite works of art! It also makes use of location-based notifications, which makes it easier than easy to enjoy content.

Here’s information from the official press release:

American Perspectives presents American art through an often regional lens, using chronology and thematic groupings to celebrate the strengths of the collection, which include 18th century furniture, New London’s maritime and whaling history, Hudson River School paintings, and Connecticut Impressionism, along with modern and contemporary art.

A cohesive system of graphic panels and labels is enhanced by an interactive mobile phone app powered by Cuseum for both iOS and Android devices. This new app, featuring tours of the galleries, educational content, and location-based notification, will provide visitors with a new way of encountering art. The Lyman Allyn will launch the application at the same time as the unveiling of American Perspectives, on November 6, 2016. Visitors using the free app will be greeted with an introduction, and will be able to pick the path through the galleries that interests them. In addition, as viewers get close to a particular work of art, rich content about a work of art can be delivered to their device. This latter feature is powered by iBeacon technology to enable notifications and provide a “digital docent” experience.

Lyman Allyn Art Museum’s new app is available for free on the App Store and at lymanallyn.org/app
