To reveal onsite content in the galleries using the scan function:
- Find an artwork market with the round ArtLens icon
- In the galleries, the icon appears with the wall label. In the app, the icon is light blue, and appears in the upper left corner of artwork images in Near You Now, and below the favorites button on artwork detail pages.
- Stand directly in front of the art.
- Tap the scan logo. This is found both in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and on the artwork detail pages for scannable artwork.
- When the camera aperture appears/opens, hold your iPad up vertically in front of the artwork you wish to scan.
- Content will appear linked to specific features of the artwork. Lower your iPad to a comfortable position, and learn more about the artwork.
Make your own tour
You can add your own tour to the By Visitors section of tours in ArtLens by selecting items to include from your list of favorites. Here's how:
- There is no sound associated with the videos in Gallery One.
- Videos associated with objects in other galleries have narration. We encourage you to bring headphones.
Don't have an iPad?
The museum has 65 iPads available for rental at the desk located inside Gallery One, near the Collection Wall. The rental fee is $5 per iPad. We will hold your valid driver's license or student ID until return.
The iPad is not required to experience many aspects of Gallery One.
