Guggenheim Launches New Multimedia Mobile App In Celebration of James Turrell Exhibition

Supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies as Part of Its
                        Arts Engagement Initiative

(NEW YORK, NY – June 20, 2013) — In conjunction with the exhibition James Turrell (June 21–September 25), the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum today launched a new mobile app that is free to download at, providing a unique educational platform for visitors to the Guggenheim and users around the world. The interactive app presents an array of content, including rich multimedia guides to current and past exhibitions; interviews with artists, curators, and exhibition designers; access to more than 1,200 works in the permanent collection; and explorations of the iconic building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The app has been designed to be accessible for visitors with disabilities.

The Guggenheim app is sponsored by Bloomberg.

“Technology has the power to address the two main challenges facing museum guests—navigation and access to information about exhibits,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies and Mayor of New York City. “That’s why we are proud to support the Guggenheim and other leading institutions as they enhance the visitor experience and expand access through innovative apps and devices that will help connect guests to art.”

“The Guggenheim app is an essential educational tool that will enhance the understanding and appreciation of the permanent collection and special exhibitions, not only within our museum walls, but also around the world,” said Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation. “The Guggenheim is pleased to offer the app free of charge and we are extremely grateful to Bloomberg for their support.”
