Once upon a time, a person could walk into the Walker Art Center and enjoy art without a phone in-hand. Now, though, the Art Center has its own app that helps visitors interact with one another and with the museum itself.
The app has been downloaded more than 5,000 times since its launch in February 2013. Download it here: http://www.walkerart.org/mobile
Here’s how to get the most out of your visit!
The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN has installed a new app, Walk, that uses your phone’s camera and GPS to turn your tour of the Walker into a multimedia experience.
Description:The app is available on Android and iPhone. It features video of tours by Walker curators as well as works by artists featured in the museum.

The Walker Art Center’s latest exhibition, “Open House,” invites visitors to use their smartphones as a guide to the museum.
Visitors will be able to download an app that includes works by artists such as Jenny Holzer, Tracey Emin and Joseph Beuys. The app uses GPS to enable visitors to listen to audio clips of artists discussing their work in the galleries where they are exhibited.
The app also provides information about other works of art and artists throughout the museum. Visitors can browse the museum’s collection online and view videos of past exhibitions online.
“The Walker is really interested in opening up new kinds of access points for our collection and our exhibitions,” said Maura Reilly, the Walker’s curator of digital media, who helped develop the project with artist-engineer Michael Bell-Smith. “We thought this was a great opportunity to experiment with technology as a way into thinking about art.”
The Walker Art Center is pleased to offer free and easy access to the Walker’s collection of artworks, exhibitions, and events through the use of your iPhone or iPod Touch. With the free Android Walker Art Center app, you can:
– View images of artworks in the collection, including a small selection of the Walker’s most popular pieces.
– Listen to audio descriptions of selected works.
– Explore featured exhibitions and upcoming events.
– Get information on visiting the museum, including hours and directions.
The Android Walker Art Center app also lets you take personal photographs from your visit and upload them directly to an online album. And because every view at the Walker engages both your eyes and ears, you can sync audio descriptions with what you’re seeing in front of you. For example, if you are looking at a work that is part of an installation in a specific space, the audio description will begin when you enter that space, so it feels like someone is speaking directly to you. The app provides current information on all of our installations so users can experience everything available through it.

Through the use of a free app for iPhones and Android phones, visitors can interact with their surroundings and learn more about the artwork on display. Works from artists like Andy Warhol and Sol LeWitt are showcased in this innovative way. The app uses your phone’s camera to provide close-ups of work as well as commentary about each piece of art.
The artwork visible through your mobile device may be familiar to you; however, you will also likely be exposed to new works that you may have otherwise overlooked. The app allows you to zoom in on individual parts of paintings or photographs to get a better look at details that may not have been apparent before. You can also access information about the artist, when they were born and died, where they were born and died, what other works they’ve done, etc.
