Cleveland’s 2013 Top IT Project

The most exciting new computer application I have seen this year was developed in Cleveland, Ohio. It premiered January 21, 2013. I had a chance to experience it over the holidays at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It is an interactive art experience titled, Gallery One.

Gallery One is comprised of four different and impressive components:

Collection Wall – features the largest multi-touch screen in the United States.

ArtLens – the free application for your iPad or iPhone that allows you to use technology as you explore the collection.

Studio Play – this is a place for families to explore art, it is not all technologically based.

Interactives Lens-while the above components all have interactive aspects, there are six additional lenses within the gallery to encourage the visitor to explore art in fascinating new ways.

This project has been a huge collaborative effort. The Maltz Family Foundation donated $10 million to support the project. Other support has come from grants and other donations.

CMA’s Chief Curator and Deputy Director, Griff Mann guided the development process. The project team was led by Jane Alexander, Director of Information Management and Technology Services. The Department of Education and Interpetation, Design and Architecture staff played significant roles. Obviously in a project of this scope, various consultants were involved to assist in the development. A complete list of the staff and companies involved are on their web page.

This was the most refreshing and new design on a user interface I have seen. It is something you see in a Sci-Fi movie that you never believe will work in today’s world.

As stated on their web site, “Cleveland Museum of Art is leading the way not only in the robust blend of art and technology throughout the gallery experience, but in museum practice itself.”
