The Frick announces a new interactive mobile app; Save your favorite works to enjoy offline or share
Also available to users is audio commentary (in English) for select works of art, as well as audio guides to the galleries in six languages.
NEW YORK, NY.- The Frick Collection announced the launch of a new mobile app, which provides instant access to content related to every work of art in the Frick’s permanent collection. Via this new platform, users can browse for information about particular objects and search the collection by artist, genre, gallery location, and audio stop number. Works of art can be saved as favorites to enjoy offline or share via email, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. The app connects to The Frick Collection’s database (collections.frick.org) to provide continually updated information.

Also available to users is audio commentary (in English) for select works of art, as well as audio guides to the galleries in six languages (English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Japanese). Visitors can listen to audio content, with headphones, on their own smartphones. Access to free Wi-Fi is available in the museum. Additionally, an interactive map allows app users to navigate the galleries and a comprehensive, up-to-date events calendar lists upcoming gallery talks, lectures, and special events.

Director Ian Wardropper, “The mobile app is yet another way the institution is using technology to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the Frick’s permanent collection. It may be used by visitors on-site or by art enthusiasts around the world remotely. By providing instant access to content related to the entire collection, as well as enhanced programs information, and with ability to save and share favorites via various social media channels, the app makes our expansive resources available to users as never before.”

Floyd Sweeting III, Head of Technology and Digital Media, continues “It is important for us to preserve the serene atmosphere of the museum, so the app provides an interesting yet unobtrusive way to use current technology to deepen the experience and understanding of The Frick Collection.”

“To engage youth today we need to provide a digital, technological frame of reference and platform which is relevant to their generation. There was a need at the Frick—hence the app was born. It will revolutionize accessibility of the Frick Collection in our digital world and culture. The reach would be global as well,” adds Sandeep Mathrani, who generously funded the application in honor of Ayesha Bulchandani-Mathrani.

The mobile app is a major initiative of The Frick Collection’s Technology and Digital Media department and was developed in conjunction with the students of the Stevens Institute of Technology. The app’s visual interface was designed in-house by Sweeting and Creative Director for Digital Media Vivian Gill, and Valery Chen, the institution’s Front End Web Developer.
