The National Gallery of Art’s Your Art App Is Now Available for Android and Select Content Has Been Translated Into 5 Languages
Washington, DC—The National Gallery of Art has launched the Your Art app for iPhone, iPod Touch, and now Android smartphones. Your Art is a free interactive mobile application featuring 130 of the treasures on view in the Gallery’s collection, including works by Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Johannes Vermeer. It enriches the experience of visitors on-site and expands the Gallery’s reach off-site by bringing its masterpieces to art lovers across the globe via quick and simple download.
In addition, the app features a selection of objects from the Gallery’s Collection Highlights tour in French, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. App users can also deepen their understanding of the history and conservation of the works in Gallery’s collection with audio commentary from director Earl A. Powell III, curators, and conservators.
A special Kid’s Tour captures the imagination of younger users and introduces them to the principles of art history. Children can choose to hear about works by masters such as Peter Paul Rubens, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, and Winslow Homer.
Your Art’s up-to-date listings of the latest programs and exhibitions, as well as maps, hours, and other important information, are useful for planning a visit. Visitors may download the app prior to visiting or during their visit by using the free public Wi-Fi in the West Building Information Room, Rotunda, or Founder’s Room.
Your Art is designed for use on iOS and Android devices.
