Technology Meets Art: new app

A new smartphone app which allows you to find great art anywhere in the UK has been launched by the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity which helps museums and galleries to buy and show art.

The state of the art app helps you to plan visits or simply get up-to-date information when you’re out and about and includes some unique art of its own – a new work by artist Julian Opie – ‘Kris and Verity Walking’.

It features the 600 most important galleries and museums in England, Scotland and Wales and lists all upcoming and current must-see art exhibitions. Loaded with beautiful high res images and helpful extra features you can get a glimpse of a gallery or exhibition and read what the critics have to say before visiting.

Visiting information for all venues is included giving you opening times, prices, contact details and directions and a location enabled map helps you locate all nearby exhibitions and venues.

Art Guide can be downloaded for free by iPhone users from the Apple App Store now (follow the link) and Android users on the 30th of April.
