Art++ is a new augmented reality application that enriches and enlivens the in-gallery experience for museum visitors. Developed in collaboration between Stanford graduate students and Cantor Arts Center staff, Art++ immerses visitors in the history, context, and importance of selected artworks by overlaying relevant content on the tablet viewfinder.
Overlay highlights include historic photos and 360 panoramas that visitors can explore. The learning experience is interactive and self-guided, encouraging visitors to look at art in new and unexpected ways.
We would like to thank the Brown Institute for Media Innovation for supporting us. The Institute, which is a collaboration between Columbia University and Stanford University established in 2012, generously sponsors projects to develop new innovative ways of telling stories.
Our work was featured in a piece about the digital revolution in the museum world: Museums Morph Digitally.
