In collaboration with Elizabeth Manekin, Head of University Programs and Academic Projects at the Ackland Art Museum, the Digital Innovation Lab staff has developed an “ART BOT,” an in-browser experience for visitors to the museum to interact with certain works of art. This interactive experience was released in conjunction with the reinstallation of the permanent collection galleries and highlights one work of art in each room. These pieces include a Veranda Post from Palace Complex at Efon-alaye, Funeral Relief of No’om (?) Wife of Haira, Son of Maliku, and Cranberry Pickers by Eastman Johnson.
Check out the project on your mobile device at cdh.unc.edu/ackland and visit the Ackland Art Museum for the full experience!
