New George Inness iPad App Just Launched
August 11, 2011
The Timken Museum of Art has just released an iPad application featuring the works of 19th century painter George Inness, the subject of our current special exhibition. Users can zoom into the images to examine the details of his beautiful European landscape paintings. Favorite images can also be posted to Facebook or shared via email. The app is now live and available for download in the app store.
The free app is the Timken’s first offering in the mobile sphere and the first iPad app that a Balboa Park institution has launched.
To develop the app, the Timken worked with the Balboa Park Online Collaborative (BPOC) and ArtFinder, a project that provides access to paintings from artists, galleries, museums, and collections around the world. If you don’t have an iPad, or if you finish zooming and want to see the real thing, the exhibition is on view through September 18, 2011. Admission is always free.
