TiLT Picture a Museum Edition: MoMA and the ABEXNY iPad App

Hanging with Hans @ MoMA, originally uploaded by Ritaflo.

Today is “Picture a Museum Day”. This is a photo from December taken in front of a Hans Hoffman paintings at the Museum of Modern Art. This painting was part of the Abstract Expressionism New York Exhibit which is open until April 25th. Before going to the show I found the wonderful ABEXNY app for my iPad. While it’s not the same as experiencing the show in person, this app enhances the experience both before and after you visit. The app includes videos of different techniques used by the abstract expressionists. Another feature I really like is the map which shows where different abstract expressionist art was made or are part of the history of abstract art. You can use the app to take a walking tour around New York and see the places that inspired the artists. I just loved this exhibit and hope to see it one more time before it closes.
