Arkansas Arts Center’s new beacon program brings interactive technology inside the galleries, to build deeper connections to the work of modernist John Marin. Equipped with only their smartphones, visitors to “Becoming John Marin: Modernist at Work” can access interactive content that encourages engagement with Marin’s artistic process.
“Visitors receive a mobile app notification when they approach a work – or group of works – driving them to additional images, stories, maps and research,” said Angel Galloway, Arkansas Arts Center director of marketing. “Patrons can then choose to view that content in real time or save it in the app to view later.”
