Hammer Museum introduces new mobile application
On your next visit to the Hammer Museum, don't be surprised to find more people fiddling with their iPhones than actually looking at the art hanging on the walls. That's because the Hammer has joined the growing list of art institutions to launch their own mobile applications.
The Hammer said that the content provided on the app will be expanded in future versions. The present version features content about the current exhibition on artist Richard Hawkins, as well as upcoming shows devoted to Ed Ruscha and Paul Thek.
In addition, the app provides background information on the Armand Hammer collection.
