Using augmented reality, Klimt’s iconic masterpiece “The Tree of Life” will be brought to life for the enjoyment of Pioneers attendees in celebration of Viennese modernism and on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of death of Gustav Klimt.
We’ve never been more passionate about helping cultural institutions push the envelope with new and immersive experiences. Today, Cuseum is pleased to announce a new feature and support Apple’s ARKit to help craft new ways of delivering experiences for museum visitors.
Augmented reality, the combination of real and computer-generated worlds viewed through your phone, is popping up wherever you look; in social media, advertising, games, etc! As a new, powerful tool for artistic creation and an innovative method of audience engagement, AR has the potential to revolutionize the way we experience art, and it was only a matter of time before AR entered the museum space. Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has been at the forefront of the movement to bring AR into museums, and in December 2017, in partnership with Cuseum, they launched the first art exhibit using Apple’s ARKit.
As museums continue to embrace digital tools to enhance their exhibits and visitor experiences, we’re grateful to take part in the never-ending dialogue and sharing of best practices around technology in the museum. How do we use technology effectively? How do we make sure that it complements the exhibit? And, sometimes most critically, can we afford it? We headed over to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum to take part in the Greater Boston Museum Educators Roundtable conversation on the topic.
The episode, “The Future Art Museum,” delves into Brendan’s background in music, art, and technology, the inspiration behind Cuseum, and the present and future of museums, as well as how technology is changing and advancing how people interact with art and culture.
Cuseum announced today, Ink For The Arts, a new initiative to unite people in the fight against the elimination of federal arts programs. The campaign comes in reaction to the on-going threats to cut funding for the arts, which would put the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and other programs at risk.
The private sector has long employed customer relationship management (CRM) software, but today, more and more, nonprofits, museums, and other organizations are recognizing the power of having a CRM. There are many options to look at when deciding which CRM to use as each solution employs a different focus, set of features, and cost to consider.

There’s a buzz in the air. Here in Boston the sun, salt water, and longer (warmer!) days have us all anticipating these next few magical months. At Cuseum we’re riding a wave of inspiration after a whirlwind spring of conferences. We hung out with directors, designers, administrators, curators, and educators– museum people (our people). Together we geeked out on art, museums, and technology. We shared visions of what the future might look like and what we’re doing to get there.
