National Gallery for Art Mobile App Test and Interview
The National Gallery of Art is looking for feedback on its first mobile
application called Your Art. Your Art features audio on 130 works of art in
the Gallery¹s collection as well as maps, high resolution images, and events
and exhibition listings.
We are seeking individuals who would be willing to come to the Gallery to
try out the app and participate in an interview conducted by a Gallery staff
member. You do not have to be a regular museum visitor to participate or a
regular user of app technologies. In fact, we are interested in talking with
people with varying experience with art and technology.
Here¹s a little more about the interview:
--When? The interview will be conducted in June and July at a mutually
--Where? The interview will be conducted in the West Building of the
National Gallery of Art.
--How long? The interview will take approximately an hour and a half from
the time you walk in the building to when you depart.
--What? The interview consist of two parts: 1) trying out the app in the
galleries in front of actual works of art with a Gallery staff member
observing, and 2) an interview based on your experience using the app.
--Thanks! In appreciation for your time, the Gallery will give you a gift
certificate for the Gallery¹s Garden Café Catalonia. Inspired by the
exhibition Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape, award-winning Washington-based
Chef Jose Andres, executive chef of Jaleo, has created a menu of signature
Catalan dishes incorporating traditional ingredients.
Your feedback will be reported anonymously with that of other participants
and will provide the Gallery with valuable information to help us improve
the Your Art app and future mobile initiatives.
