iAfrica iPhone app image

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) is using a small, special exhibition to engage its audience in the act of reinterpreting one of its major permanent collection groups.

iAfrica: Connecting with Sub-Saharan Art is on view in the MIA’s Cargill Gallery through April 4, 2010. It aims to measure visitors’ attitudes toward both African art in general, and toward installation, interpretation, and presentation issues. Knowledge gained will help guide decision-making as the entire African collection is reinstalled in the coming years.

Includes iPhone application to be used in conjunction with a museum visit (or without—see especially the lamellophone, or thumb piano, component).

FREE (both the museum visit and the app).
